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.
Tony Harris, Emmy winning Journalist and documentary filmmaker, will pull back the curtain on modern day racism in HATE IN AMERICA. Armed with his tenacious passion for civil rights, and his to the point journalistic approach, Harris will hit the streets, exploring three different stories that expose racial inequality and hate crimes from a town with white supremacists to SPLC cases.
