  • Oh, Baltimore!

    Tens of thousands of homes in Baltimore are empty and boarded up. The police commissioner recently had to resign after tax fraud. A pack of cops in town are thoroughly corrupt and have been suspended and convicted. Baltimore was in turmoil for days in April 2015 when police arrested Freddie Gray in impoverished West Baltimore. Gray died of his injuries a week later. Baltimore is also where Tyrone West suffocated and died in his arrest after a traffic stop. Baltimore: where east and west resemble a war zone and third world zone: drugs, gang violence, poverty and homelessness. 1 in 200 inhabitants has no roof over their head. But on the rubble of this city, there is also hope. Little heroes that make the difference. Pamela Curtis who protects her children and her neighborhood from drugs. Police Commissioner Melvin Russell who, as a cop in the difficult neighborhoods, will listen and bring people together. Christina Flowers, who offers the homeless a home and a second chance. Tawanda Jones, who fights against police brutality. Kwame Rose, who makes the sharpest analysis - while rapping - of what it's like to be black in America. Slowly, excruciatingly slow, Baltimore is rising from the ashes. Together with cameraman-director-producer Koen Soete, VRT NWS correspondent Björn Soenens made the documentary "Oh, Baltimore!"

  • In Luzerne County, support for Trump is unshakable

    What was striking about four years of Trump: his supporters have remained loyal to him. But does that still apply in this crisis year? For Nieuwsuur (Dutch TV), we went to Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, looking for that loyal Trump voter. Luzerne County has historically been a Democratic stronghold, where in 2016 Trump won this region by force. Gains in Luzerne County were the prelude to the surprising gains in Pennsylvania.

    It was one of the greatest massacres in United States history, but most Americans have never heard of it: the Tulsa massacre in Oklahoma state. After nearly a hundred years, the mayor of Tulsa has reopened the murder investigation. The municipality is looking for the mass graves of hundreds of black Americans who were killed by white gangs in 1921 in one evening.

  • Murders and disappearances along the 'Highway of Tears'

    At first glance, Highway 16 looks like a normal highway. However, the billboards next to the road betray the dark story behind this road, which winds through the wilderness of the Canadian province of British Columbia. In recent decades, dozens of young, indigenous women have disappeared here. Local residents therefore nicknamed the highway the 'Highway of Tears', or the Highway of Tears. "Girls, don't hitchhike," a sign on the side of the road says in large letters. For a long time there was no attention for things in Canada, but that is now slowly changing. Report for Nieuwsuur, broadcast on January 15, 2020.
