In 2003, WNET journalist Jenna Flanagan reported on the murder of 15-year-old Newark native Sakia Gunn. Now, 20 years on, Flanagan revisits the story to examine what progress might have been made in protecting Newark’s queer youth -- and how exactly justice was served in one of New Jersey’s first prosecuted LGBTQ+ hate crime homicides. Flanagan sits down to talk with those whose lives intersected with Sakia’s — from her classmates and friends to the wide community of academics, artists, journalists, and politicians that got to know Sakia only after her death. Join us as we explore the impact of one person’s life on a whole community in WNET’s original multipart documentary podcast series.
