Exclusive Sit-Down Interview w/ Mike Brown's Family + More in BET 'Justice for Ferguson' Special

BET News Correspondent Marc Lamont Hill and Actress Keke Palmer will host the BET News Special “Justice For Ferguson: The Shooting of Michael Brown,” which will deconstruct and examine the key elements of the case through first-hand accounts and will present an exclusive sit down interview with the Brown family. 

It premieres tomorrow, Friday, August 22 at 7 PM ET/PT on BET, and will be simulcasting on Centric at 7 PM ET/ 4 PM PT.

The BET News special will trace the story from when it first made headlines, to the rallies that mobilized folks to the streets, demanding justice. It will also report on new developments in the case including accounts from a witness who says she saw the murder and has raw uncensored never-before-seen footage just moments after the shooting. 

Additionally BET News will speak to Missouri Highway Patrol’s Captain Ron Johnson and NAACP member of the national Board of Directors, John Gaskin.

Capitalizing off this (IMO)… Oh well–perhaps something 'good' will come of it.
