If you missed HBO's incredible "Watchmen" series earlier this year - it's not too late to catch up
The show touches on many of the issues brought to the forefront since the murder of George Floyd
Upon its original release, Watchmen was lauded for its nuanced, highly-relevant portrayals of police brutality, legacies of institutional racism, and inequity, illustrated with historical settings like the 1921 Tulsa race massacre and the Jim Crow era. Given everything that’s happening today, this HBO marathon could not have come at a better time. From the murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery to the Black Lives Matter protests nationwide to the calls for the dismantling of white supremacy and police departments, it’s almost as though we’re witnessing Watchmen play out in real time.
In a statement, HBO said the free marathon is an “extension of the network’s content offering highlighting Black experiences, voices and storytellers.”
