Fruitvale Station (2013)

A big winner at the Sundance Film Festival, Fruitvale Station 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. Sadly, the story bears too many resemblances to that of Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teen who was fatally shot by a police officer in Missouri last week.
