Milestones In Black History
There are several offerings that examine the history of the struggles and strife, the tragedies and the tri- umphs of African Americans in the U.S., from the time of Lincoln to the Civil Rights era, including “Lincoln: American Mastermind.” For chil- dren and adults alike, there’s “The Tuskegee Airmen,” 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 his- tory, 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 base- ball great Curt Flood in the docu- mentary “The Curious Case of Curt Flood” and the five wrongly imprisoned teens in “The Central Park Five.” Drama movies like “Flight” starring Denzel Washing- ton 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 Inte- gration of College Football.”
Music aficionados can celebrate the 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.” Viewers everywhere can share their passions for Black History Month programming and see what’s waiting for them On Demand at www.facebook.com/DiversityOnDemand.
