The Red Line follows the lives of three vastly different Chicago families whose stories of loss and tragedy intersect in the wake of the shooting of an African-American doctor by a white cop. As the stories of the Calder, Young and Evans families converge, a message of hope appears — it’s possible to emerge from tragedy stronger, and it’s important to come together with others in an effort not only to survive, but to thrive. Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and Emmy Award® nominee Ava DuVernay serves as executive producer.
Following the exclusive screening of the first two episodes, the cast – Emayatzy Corinealdi (Middle of Nowhere), Noah Wyle (ER), and Aliyah Royale (War Paint), and director Victoria Mahoney (Star Wars:Episode IX) will join Dean of Social Sciences Darnell Hunt, Professor Karida Brown, and Professor Marcus Anthony Hunter for an intimate conversation.
