Full Schedule Primetime Calendar

Celebrate Dr. King's legacy with two evenings of special programs, Tuesday and Wednesday:

"Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise" looks at the last five decades of African American history since the major civil rights victories through the eyes of Henry Louis Gates, Jr., exploring the tremendous gains and persistent challenges of these years. Drawing on eyewitness accounts, scholarly analysis and rare archival footage, the series illuminates our recent past and paints a complex and comprehensive portrait of black America since 1965, while raising urgent questions about the future of the African American community — and our nation as a whole.

Part One, "Out of the Shadows/Move On Up," airs Tuesday, April 3 at 8pm.

Part Two, "Keep Your Head Up/Touch the Sky," airs Wednesday, April 4 at 8pm.
