PUTTING THE SOUL IN PUBLIC MEDIA SINCE 1968:

NOW IT'S YOUR TURN...

We're interested in stories on video that explore the life and culture of the African American experience.  If you've created a story on video you'd like to see published in the Black Perspectives Now section on the Basic Black broadband site, please send your idea to basic_black@wgbh.org.

 

ABOUT BASIC BLACK

Basic Black was created in 1968 during the turmoil of the civil rights movement as a response to the demand for public television programs reflecting the concerns of African Americans. Now, forty years later, in the midst of another historical political shift, the mission of Basic Black remains strong.

The historic 2008 presidential race, the reexamination of racial ideologies, the search for new black leadership, the embrace of a global citizenship, and the continuing search for solutions to pressing concerns demand a fresh examination of the black experience. Basic Black on broadband will reflect that ongoing conversation, across geographic borders and generational lines with the most current stories, interviews, and commentaries.
