The Jussie Smollett Case

Examining the social justice and political impact of the Jussie Smollett case.

Actor Jussie Smollett is out on bond after appearing before a judge for the first time. Chicago police accuse him of filing a false report when he told authorities he was attacked and beaten in a racist and homophobic attack. Investigators say Smollett staged the entire incident to promote his career.   We examine the political and social justice implications of the case.
