HutchinsonReport Documentary Productions Premiers Gripping New Film Driving Death While Black
By: The Hutchinson Report
The crash was hardly an isolated occurrence in Black and Latino communities. The Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crunched hard numbers on vehicle fatalities over the past two decades. The numbers repeatedly show one thing. Blacks and Latinos are at far greater risk from accidents, many fatal, than whites. It's getting worse.
The death toll in 2020 was up by twenty-three percent. Not only were the numbers constantly high for Black fatalities in vehicle accidents, but they were also consistently high for Black pedestrians. Blacks were more likely to be struck while on foot than other pedestrians. The reason more Blacks were more likely than whites to rely on their feet to get them from point A to B than whites was due to lack of a motor vehicle.
Driving Death While Black produced by political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson is the premier offering of his HutchinsonReport Documentary Productions. The film presents on the scene reportage on the accident, statistics on fatalities, the reaction from the community, and an action plan to prevent the continuing carnage.
HutchinsonReport Documentary Productions will produce short mini-documentaries on the hot button, news, and public affairs issues that impact the public. The mini-documentaries will blend on-the-scene action footage, commentary, and news-making events. The aim, "says Hutchinson" is to present short, punchy, fast-paced visuals, news, and commentary that stimulate debate and discussion on the issues that capture the public and media's attention.
