Racial profiling by police is a recurring problem in our society for people of color. Our documentary film shows two main characters, Demitrius and Niaja, who experienced racial profiling as young teenagers. Demitrius was followed, stopped and searched based on what he was wearing. While this experience affected Demitrius’ identity–how he dresses, walks and presents himself it also made him curious about black history and the roots of racial profiling.
