The 2-hour premiere event WHY WE HATE: THE RECKONING airs SUNDAY, JUNE 21 AT 9PM on Discovery and Discovery GO.

Wars and violence have occurred throughout human history. From the horrific acts of the Holocaust and genocide to the daily struggles of discrimination and oppression, hate has had an impact on all our lives.

To dig deeper on issues of hate and learning the science behind people’s actions, Hall will lead a thought-provoking discussion, connecting the themes of the series to the events of today. Rounding out the panel are Hollywood producer Will Packer, NFL football player Brandon Marshall and an interview with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones.

Executive producers Gibney and Spielberg state, "This project is an inquiry, an attempt to understand why we hate, through the science, and through an understanding of our common humanity. Hate is in our DNA. If we understand why we act the way we do, we can change the way we act. That is what we are uniquely capable of as human beings.”

Viewers may also join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #WhyWeHate and by following Discovery on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.
