"Switched at Birth"
Tuesday, February 28 at 9 PM ET/PT on Freeform

          This special episode is seen entirely from the point of view of three African-American students. With tensions running at an all-time high, the Black Student Union takes a stand against the university administration until their demands are heard. Told in three chapters from the varying perspectives of Sharee, Iris and Chris, the students deal with their frustrations in different ways.
 
 
          Iris (guest star Sharon Pierre-Louis, “The Lying Game”) pledges to continue her hunger strike until the students responsible for a racist display outside the Black Student Union are expelled, but her commitment has consequences on her health. Sharee (guest star Bianca Bethune, “Bad Boys II”) faces the pain of her own past as she tries to gather signatures and rally more students to get involved. Chris (guest star Sam Adegoke, upcoming “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland”) is torn between wanting to dazzle several baseball scouts at an upcoming game and standing with his fellow students to show solidarity.
