FEATURES & HIGHLIGHTS

As the country moves forward with its efforts to achieve racial justice and address systemic inequalities, we continue to reflect on how we talk about #RaceinAmerica with DECOLONIZING MENTAL HEALTH, a new series dismantling the racism that underscores the mental healthcare industry. Every week, therapists and patients of color share their stories and call for change in the way mental health is defined and treated within BIPOC communities.

In celebration of Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day, stream 11 films and series that champion Black stories, human rights and the continuing fight for equality. Explore more films examining the role of race in the U.S. with our Race in America viewer's guide, like our Webby Award-winning Stories from the Stage special GROWING UP BLACK, in which three storytellers examine the Black experience in America.

WORLD Channel also observes PRIDE Month this June with a new film from America ReFramed that celebrates the decades-long friendship of two transgender best friends, JACK & YAYA, plus additional #PRIDEStories found in our PRIDE viewer’s guide.
