Black Power TV

"In Black Power TV, [Chicago media scholar] Devorah Heitner chronicles the emergence of Black public affairs television starting in 1968."

*

Heitner will read from Black Power TV on Wednesday evening at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.

Heitner will be joined by WBEZ journalist Natalie Moore to explore the public television show Soul! We will return to a particular moment in American television when Soul!, a national program coming out of New York, carved out a cultural space that resisted the politics of respectability, introduced audiences to a vibrant Black creative and political aesthetic, pushed past normative boundaries of gender and sexuality while entertaining viewers and valuing Black life and performance.

Featuring a DJ set before and after the program.
