Kellogg Foundation and Middle Passage Productions, WYCC PBS Chicago’s Colorblind takes an honest look at the effects of racism in America. The goal of the documentary is to bring clarity to the topic by presenting the modern expression of racism, exploring how these negative beliefs are unwittingly fostered, and recognizing the people and projects that address racial inequality and promote racial healing.

In November 2012, WYCC PBS Chicago produced A Plea for Peace: A Town Hall Meeting on Violence in Chicago. An epidemic is sweeping Chicago, and its effect has been devastating. The city known for its beautiful skyline and four seasons has earned some unwanted notoriety: gang violence. According to reports, halfway through 2012, the number of people killed in Chicago surpassed the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan. At that time, 144 Americans had been killed in Afghanistan, while 228 people died in our own backyard. Neighborhoods throughout the city are under attack and residents are calling for help. Chicago is pleading for peace. #pleaforpeace
