Black America Since MLK: and Still I Rise Previous Broadcasts

Keep Your Head Up/Touch The Sky (Episode #102)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 6, 2018 -- 4:00 PM

The series continues, charting a wave of new opportunities and new consciousness that would lift African Americans to undreamed-of heights - in Ivy League schools, major corporations, the Supreme Court and even the White House. While portraying these unprecedented victories, Gates also questions why another swath of African Americans have been left behind - as the country's class divide has deepened over the last 50 years causing the most vulnerable to suffer in ways that Dr. King and his peers in the civil rights movement would never have thought possible.

Out of the Shadows/Move On Up (Episode #101)

KQED World: Thu, Apr 5, 2018 -- 4:00 PM

The series begins in 1965, in the wake of Malcolm X's assassination and the passage of the Voting Rights Act - which was followed 5 days later by an incendiary explosion of black rage: the Watts riots. It moves on to explore the burgeoning Black Power movement which took much of America (including many old-school black leaders) by surprise, telling stories of Stokely Carmichael, the Black Panthers and cultural icons like James Brown alongside an exploration of the cultural trends that expressed black pride - from Afros and dashikis to "Soul Train."
