I’m working with America’s leading digital cable providers and cable networks to celebrate Black History Month through Diversity On Demand on cable!
They are giving digital cable customers the opportunity to catch up with some of the history, struggles and beauty that are an integral part of the African-American experience as part of cable’s Diversity On Demand on cable initiative. Viewers can learn more about African-American history at their convenience during Black History Month. With the push of a button, they can instantly watch their favorites from the comfort of their own home with just a “click away”.
Multiethnic shows and movies available On Demand in February and beyond include:
Milestones In Black History
There are several offerings that examine the history of the struggles and strife, the tragedies and the triumphs of African Americans in the U.S., from the time of Lincoln to the Civil Rights era, including “Lincoln: American Mastermind.” For children and adults alike, there’s “The Tuskegee Airmen,” (we just watched this last night ourselves!) recounts the true story of how a group of African-
American WWII pilots overcame racist opposition to become one of the finest U.S. fighter groups in history, and “First to Fight: The Black Tankers of WWII.”
Profiles In Courage
The biographies of influential African Americans come to life in dramatic profiles and stories of individuals who may be less known but perhaps should be more so, such as legendary baseball great Curt Flood in the documentary “The Curious Case of Curt Flood” and the five wrongly imprisoned teens in “The Central Park Five.” Drama movies like “Flight” starring Denzel Washington and “The Help” starring Viola Davis, and TV programs such as “House of Lies” starring Don Cheadle, showcase award-worthy performances from notable African-American A-list actors. Viewers can also get a close look at what it’s like living in the cross fire of America’s drug war in the Emmy Award–winning miniseries “The Corner.”
Pride, Passion and Pain
For sports buffs, there are important shows that exemplify the contributions and struggles of athletes, such as “Joe Louis: America’s Hero…Betrayed,” and “Breaking the Huddle: The Integration of College Football.”
Music aficionados can celebratethe true artistry of entertainer and civil rights activist Harry Belafonte in “Sing Your Song,” then laugh along with “Why We Laugh: Black Comedians on Black Comedy.”
