Wednesday: The Murder of Yusuf Hawkins

The 1989 murder of a black teen by a white mob in Bensonhurst is recounted in the new documentary “Yusuf Hawkins: Storm Over Brooklyn” (HBO, 9 p.m.) that strikes a lot of parallels with today’s uprisings. 

You’ll be very hard pressed to find good people on both sides of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., that ended in death and ugly conflict three years ago today. The two hour special,  “Impact of Hate: Charlottesville” (Investigation Discovery, 9 p.m.) shows how little has changed since then, starting with the Robert E. Lee statue at the center of the dispute, still standing.   

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (ABC, 9 p.m.) ends its run after more seasons than anyone expected — seven — with a two hour series finale. 

The new documentary series “(Un) Well” (Netflix, streaming) studies the claims and benefits of the lucrative wellness industry from fasting and bee pollen therapy.

A $1 million winner is named on “World of Dance” (NBC, 9 p.m.).

 “America’s Got Talent” (NBC, 8 p.m.) picks five to advance from Tuesday night’s show. 

If you’re taping “Big Brother All-Stars” (CBS, 9 p.m.) and missed, as I did, who exactly Cody nominated for the first eviction on Sunday (because golf ran a little late), it was Keesha and Kevin. Which makes the first veto competition tonight.
