Fruitvale Station (2013)

A big winner at the Sundance Film Festival, Fruitvale Station,
produced by Weinstein Company in association with BET Films, is based on the heart-wrenching story of Oscar Grant, an young, unarmed Black man who was shot by police officers at a BART station in the Bay Area. With the film set for a July 12 in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, here's a look at films that tackled the subject of social injustice.
