Oct. 23 CNN Presents magazine hosted by Soledad O’Brien and Sanjay Gupta

On this weekend’s CNN Presents, hosted by Soledad O’Brien and Dr. Sanjay Gupta anchor a news magazine program that includes reports from Amber Lyon on women professional mixed martial arts fighters, and an investigation from Drew Griffin on the shocking investigation of the horrific beating and murder of African-American James Craig Anderson, who was run over multiple times by an F-250 pickup and left for dead by a violent group of young, white men known as the “Brandon Boys” in Mississippi.  The U.S. Department of Justice could potentially classify this case as a federal hate crime against driver Deryl Dedmon, however, some Rankin County citizens are indifferent to suggestions that Dedmon committed a hate crime. Griffin interviews District Attorney Robert Smith, Assistant Police Chief, Anderson’s sister Barbara Anderson Young, Pastor Richardson, Hayden Coven, Ken Johnston and others.

This edition of CNN Presents will debut on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 8:00pm and 11:00pm ET & PT.
