Racism, police brutality, disparities in education, careers, health care, economic opportunity, business and housing – are just some of the issues that have long plagued Pittsburgh’s African American and other marginalized communities.

It’s important to know who’s already working for change. But how can others get involved? Whose positive efforts are going unnoticed? WQED’s video documentary series hopes to create dialogue by sharing the thoughtful voices of a diverse group – different backgrounds, different ideas, different goals – all working towards equity.

EPISODE 15: The Missing

When artist Tonee Turner went missing on New Year’s Eve 2019, family, friends and community members began searching for the talented person who had brightened the lives of the people around her. Years later, Tonee’s whereabouts are still unknown and questions still remain. In this episode, we ask: When a person of color goes missing, are they given the same consideration as missing people of other races? And how do we change the perception of what it means to be missing?
