From jump, Black-ish has been #woke — always bringing it when it comes to tackling the issues we face on the daily.

On February 24, the show will cover another huge issue — police brutality — in an episode called “Hope.” According to Variety, this episode will be centered around a fictional police brutality case and the family’s reactions to what they’re seeing play out on their TV screen.
