On Tuesday, Investigation Discovery debuted documentary film, ID Films: March to Justice, reflecting on our nation’s ongoing pursuit of racial equality. The event, held at The Newseum in Washington, D.C., also featured a panel discussion following the film’s premiere, with Kerry Kennedy, president of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights and daughter of former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, John Seigenthaler, First Amendment Center founder and former administrative assistant to Robert F. Kennedy and Carolyn McKinstry, witness to the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, AL in 1963.

Award-winning filmmaker Keith Beauchamp will host another ID event next week, this time in New York on Tuesday, February 12 at the Paley Center. The event will feature highlights of Beauchamp’s upcoming The Injustice Files: Hood of Suspicion, an in-depth look at racial-profiling practices still occurring today, brought to national attention in 2008 with the shooting of Robbie Tolan in Texas and, more recently, by the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida. Beauchamp will also be joined by Henry Schleiff, President & General Manager of Investigation Discovery, Kerry Kennedy, John Seigenthaler, Carolyn McKinstry, and Robbie Tolan for a panel discussion.
