NEW YORK (AP) — A&E network is set to air a documentary series focused on the Ku Klux Klan.

Announced Monday, Generation KKK aims to expose the missions of this racist, anti-Semitic organization and show its impact on American families as Klan members grapple with the consequences of breaking free.

Throughout eight one-hour episodes, the series follows four families including an “Imperial Wizard” who hopes to groom his teenage daughter to take his place, and a fifth-generation Klan family struggling to keep up the legacy.

The series promises to take viewers inside the places where hatred and prejudice are born and bred. It will also follow a group of anti-hate and peace activists working to break the cycle by helping convince members to leave the hate group.

Black Twitter, naturally weighed in on Generation KKK, with most users saying the show should be boycotted, if its aired at all.
