PBS is highlighting the African-American experience through on-air content on PBS member stations, online through the PBS Black Culture Connection and through a series of community conversations that will engage viewers in the exploration of African-American history and culture.

In addition to documentaries airing in February featuring those who helped influence integration and inclusion, throughout 2016 PBS will also feature programs about moments in history that helped shape race relations today.
