As the world grappled with the Black Lives Matter movement in Summer 2021, ‘Black Lightning’ Season 4 decided to have a deep look into the matter. When the latest iteration premiered with its first episode on February 8, 2021, we received an extremely sensitive storyline. Titled ‘The Book of Reconstruction: Chapter One,’ the episode follows Jefferson Pierce, aka Black Lightning (essayed by Cress Williams), as he handles a difficult situation. He notices two white cops harassing and frisking a Black teen. The young boy, a while before, had just been walking on the street holding a violin.
The two officers allege that the teen holds drugs and asks him to hand them over. Jefferson happens to see the whole interaction while driving. After witnessing the injustice, he parks his car and asks the cops to let the kid go — saying that he knows the boy. He also explains that the teenager has not done anything to deserve being treated like that. However, the cops do not trust Jefferson. In retaliation, they pull out their guns. But Jefferson is unarmed. A frustrated Black Lighting says, “I’m so tired of this…,” and furiously strikes down both the officers with bolts of blue lightning from his hands. He does not kill the cops. But he makes sure that they suffer from immense pain. Since he is in disguise, he makes sure to wipe their memories.
