ABC to Re-Air ‘Black-ish’ Police Violence Episode

Both the 2016 installment and the 2017 “Juneteenth” episode are scheduled to re-air this upcoming Tuesday night.

The 2016 installment, “Hope”, focuses on the reaction of the Johnson family to a court case concerning an African American teenager who was allegedly a victim of police violence. The 2017 installment celebrates the end of slavery in Texas through an array of musical numbers. “It’s been 1,562 days since we first shared that episode with the world and it breaks my heart on so many levels that this episode feels just as timely as it did then and eerily prescient to what’s happening to black people in this country today,” series creator Kenya Barris said in a statement announced on social media.

The episodes will be airing at 8 P.M. this upcoming Tuesday.
