DC Black Pride -- Answering the Call
I was inspired to produce my TV special DC Black Pride — ANSWERING THE CALL a year ago while doing research for an article about the relevance of DC Black Pride today. Last May, I realized that the history DC Black Pride is poorly documented and remembered and that I needed to do something about it while some of the leaders are still alive to tell their stories.
I developed a comprehensive treatment for an interview program that could be executed as a documentary, TV special, a TV series of even a pod cast. I pitched the concept to the District of Columbia Office of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment. Working with OCTFME producers, we agreed that the TV special format is the right fit for the project. I learned a lot from supervisory producer, Brenda Mallory. We became a dynamic duo and moved mountains to deliver a quality product.
DC Black Pride — ANSWERING THE CALL will air periodically on DCN — Ch 16 on all DC cable providers and is available any time here https://youtu.be/Zt2Ealp8VHE
Oh that article I wrote last year was published in the Blade on May 25, 2017. Do We Still Need DC Black Pride? This answer is “Yes” the reasons why are compelling.
