Hate in America Season 1
Building on the success of the HATE IN AMERICA special that aired in 2015, Investigation Discovery (ID) and Emmy Award-winning journalist Tony Harris are teaming with premier civil rights advocacy organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and its legendary founder, Morris Dees, to be the first network to produce a series showcasing stories from the organization’s case files in a new series – HATE IN AMERICA.
The SPLC, which has been fighting hate and bigotry through litigation and education for more than four decades, is currently tracking nearly 800 active hate groups across the country, which target entire classes of people for their race, religion, sexual orientation, or other immutable characteristics. These groups, according to SPLC, seek to divide our society with bigotry and, too often, violence. Produced by NBC News’ award-winning production arm Peacock Productions, the documentary series HATE IN AMERICA kicks off with its first premiere on Monday, February 29 at 8/7c.
