Documentaries TARGET: ST. LOUIS and TARGET: PHILADELPHIA explore systemic racism in the US. TARGET: ST. LOUIS: Post-Hiroshima, the US Army engaged in classified open-air studies on the effects of aerosol radiation. Low-income African-Americans in St. Louis were unwitting subjects of testing, by design. TARGET: ST. LOUIS investigates historical catalysts for these events, tracing firsthand accounts and questions from survivors to subsequent Federal legislation requiring informed consent by human subjects. TARGET: PHILADELPHIA: In 1985, Philadelphia police bombed a residential building to end a standoff with Black militant group MOVE, setting a new standard for institutionalized violence and the dehumanization of Black bodies. TARGET: PHILADELPHIA explores the rise of police militarization within the contexts of Black nationalism and the systemic disenfranchisement that incubates movements like Black Lives Matter
