Netflix’s Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy

Stanley Nelson, Rep. Karen Bass, Samson Styles, and Marcia Smith in Conversation with Maria Hinojosa

Jan 21, 2021

Join the creators of Netflix’s urgent new documentary Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy with Congressmember Karen Bass for a 92Y Confronts Hate conversation with NPR’s Maria Hinojosa about the film—and the disturbing systemic racism of America’s War on Drugs. Award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson’s account of the crack era is a vital examination of its devastation in Black communities—and how laws meant to combat drug use disproportionately incarcerated people of color for non-violent offenses, exacerbating a vicious cycle of oppression that continues to this day. Watch him discuss this important film in a panel discussion with the team who brought it to fruition and those who witnessed the crack era firsthand—and hear what we can all do to combat the pernicious legacy of this public health crisis and mass incarceration.
