Throughout Black History Month Time Warner Cable will air special themed vignettes celebrating African American heroes on SoCal Channel 101 and Video on Demand

Time Warner Cable today announced the upcoming broadcasts of special programming that will air throughout the month of February in honor of Black History Month. The themed shows and segments will include programs that highlight the lives, culture and trials and tribulations of notable African Americans throughout history.

Each piece will air on a rotating basis throughout the month of February on SoCal Channel 101, an interactive channel exclusively for Time Warner Cable subscribers, as well as on the provider’s Video on Demand (VOD). The cable company will also air two special half-hour programs; the first being an interesting and informative segment about Leimert Park, one of the prominent cultural hubs for African Americans in Los Angeles.  The second is a look at the history of the Watts Towers, including its origins, survival through the turbulent 1960s, and its existence today as an emblematic center in the LA community of Watts.

All programs will air on Channel 101 throughout the month of February, and can also be watched for free anytime on VOD.  To access this special programming on VOD, subscribers can tune to Channel 1, select “Local,” then “SoCal’s Best,” then “Black History”.  For a full programming schedule, including all Black History Month programming can be found at
