Across four hourlong episodes TNT examines a variety of race-related issues, as seen through the eyes of NBA legend and Emmy-winning basketball commentator Charles Barkley. Never one to stifle his opinion, Barkley explores race relations from different angles and engages in thoughtful but spirited dialogue with a diverse cross section of Americans. To accomplish his objective -- to build mutual understanding that can lead to productive solutions -- he engages with everyday people as well as cultural and academic experts, honing in on such topics as police and race relations, Muslims in America, immigration issues and Hollywood stereotyping. The results are shockingly provocative and strikingly emotional, with Barkley finding his own preconceived notions being examined and challenged in each episode.
