The parents of Michael Brown, the slain man whose death has inspired a series of riots and protests in Ferguson, Missouri, will have an exclusive sit-down interview on BET during the news special, "Justice For Ferguson: The Shooting of Michael Brown," airing at 7pm EST Friday, August 22nd. The hour-long program will be simulcast at the same time on Centric, and will be hosted by BET News Correspondent Marc Lamont Hill and actress Keke Palmer.
According to a press release issued by the network, the special will fuse interviews with documentary footage shot on the ground in Ferguson amidst protestors as they encountered police. New developments in the case are promised to be revealed, as are conversations with Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson and NAACP member of the national Board of Directors, John Gaskin.
