As Jericka Duncan highlighted, domestic violence in relationships is often overlooked and even when reported, can be treated differently depending on the race, age, and sex of the victim. This is an issue that was recently brought to light in a documentary detailing one family’s experience of their missing loved one.
The documentary follows a father, who after years of searching for his son, finally uncovers a story of brutality and deep-seated injustice. Underneath the layers of bureaucracy and racism lies an incredible story of resilience and hope. Despite seemingly insurmountable odds, the family refuses to give up their search for answers about what happened to their son as they fight for justice.
This powerful documentary brings attention to overlooked cases of missing persons and highlights how domestic violence can affect families in very different ways based on their race, age, or gender. It also shines a light on the need for better understanding and education around how these cases are handled in order to avoid similar tragedies from occurring again in the future.
We encourage you to watch this important documentary and bring awareness not only to this individual case but also to all those people who have been affected by domestic violence in relationships. It’s time we all stand together and fight against such injustices wherever they exist.
