How It Went Down
- By: Kekla Magoon
- Narrated by: Cherise Boothe, Shari Peele, Kevin R. Free, and others
- Length: 7 hrs and 10 mins
When 16-year-old Tariq Johnson dies from two gunshot wounds, his community is thrown into an uproar. Tariq was black. The shooter, Jack Franklin, is white. In the aftermath of Tariq's death, everyone has something to say, but no two accounts of the events line up. Day by day, new twists further obscure the truth. Tariq's friends, family, and community struggle to make sense of the tragedy, and to cope with the hole left behind when a life is cut short.
gives perspective on race.
