PBS broadcasts programming created by and about African Americans year-round, from public affairs to history to independent film to kids programming. In celebration of this year's Black History Month, PBS will showcase an expansive lineup of programs profiling the rich history, culture and contributions of African Americans. From the abolition of slavery to the rise of the black power movement, these programs take a profound look into a variety of historical events and individuals.
