NAACP Chairman Featured in PBS Documentary

January 7, 2020

NAACP Chairman of the Board of Directors, Leon W. Russell, will be featured in “The Democracy Rebellion: A Reporter’s Notebook with Hedrick Smith, a documentary focusing on narratives of citizen movements and graphic portraits of local heroes launching local, bipartisan campaigns to restore democracy through clean elections, exposing dark money, voter protections, and gerrymander reform. 

For too many years,  Americans have been calling for reforms to fix our broken democracy. When Congress didn’t act,  they set out to fix it themselves. 2018 was the biggest, boldest year for changing election laws, making voting easier, adopting public funding of campaigns and other reforms in the past half-century.

The documentary will air on PBS on Monday, January 6, 2020 and it rolls across the nation all through January and beyond. Check below to find out where and when you can see our one-hour film on your state network or local PBS station.
