Black History Documentaries & Programs
During the month of February, PBS SoCal and KCET will be showing several documentaries and programs including the four-hour, two-part series, THE BLACK CHURCH: “This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song” from executive producer, host and writer Henry Louis Gates, Jr., which traces the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America. The documentary reveals how Black people have worshipped and, through their spiritual journeys, improvised ways to bring their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own, but a redemptive force for a nation whose original sin was found in their ancestors’ enslavement across the Middle Passage. Featuring interviews with Oprah Winfrey, John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, Bishop Michael Curry, Dr. Cornel West, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Rev. Al Sharpton, Yolanda Adams, Rev. William Barber II, BeBe Winans, Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie and more. The documentary premieres Part One on Tues., Feb. 16 at 9 p.m. PT and Part Two on Tues., Feb. 23 on PBS SoCal.
