With a global audience of 800+ million people, A+E Networks has both reach and responsibility. SHINING A LIGHT is a once-in-a-lifetime concert, as well as an ongoing charitable initiative intended for advancing the conversation on race in America. The event was simulcast across the A+E family of networks, including A&E, FYI, HISTORY, H2, Lifetime and LMN, as well as on iHeartMedia radio stations and the iHeartRadio digital platform.

Filmed in New York, Los Angeles and South Carolina.
