Diversity On Demand Celebrates Black History Month #GIVEAWAY

February is Black History Month. As a mother of a biracial child, I definitely want my son to have full exposure to his ethnicity either through books or television. So I was thrilled to find out that digital cable customers will have an opportunity to watch a variety of films on Black History through  Diversity on Demand programming. Customers can choose from comedies, musicals, historical events and dramas by some amazing African Americans.

Check out what On Demand has to offer this month:

  • Milestones In Black History – There are several offerings that examine the history of the struggles and strife, the tragedies and the triumphs of African Americans in the U.S., from the time of Lincoln to the Civil Rights era, including “Lincoln: American Mastermind.” For children and adults alike, there’s “The Tuskegee Airmen,” recounts the true story of how a group of African- American WWII pilots overcame racist opposition to become one of the finest U.S. fighter groups in history, and “First to Fight: The Black Tankers of WWII
  • Profiles In Courage – The biographies of influential African Americans come to life in dramatic profiles and stories of individuals who may be less known but perhaps should be more so, such as legendary baseball great Curt Flood in the documentary “The Curious Case of Curt Flood” and the five wrongly imprisoned teens in “The Central Park Five.” Drama movies like “Flight” starring Denzel Washington and “The Help” starring Viola Davis, and TV programs such as “House of Lies” starring Don Cheadle, showcase award-worthy performances from notable African-American A-list actors. Viewers can also get a close look at what it’s like living in the crossfire of America’s drug war in the Emmy Award-winning miniseries “The Corner.”
  • Pride, Passion and Pain – For sports buffs, there are important shows that exemplify the contributions and struggles of athletes, such as “Joe Louis: America’s Hero…Betrayed,” and “Breaking the Huddle: The Integration of College Football.”
  • That’s Entertainment – Music aficionados can celebrate the true artistry of entertainer and civil rights activist Harry Belafonte in “Sing Your Song,” then laugh along with “Why We Laugh: Black Comedians on Black Comedy.”
