African American History

Show Summary

In honor of our nation's Black History Month, PBS brings you a wide selection of programs celebrating African American Heritage. Examine the history and stories of such celebrated African Americans as Dr. Martin Luther King, author and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, and the iconic Muhammed Ali. Trace the lineage of participants from Chrick Rock to Maya Angelou in African American Lives II, which draws on DNA analysis, genealogical research and family oral tradition to uncover their family's journey from Africa to the United States. Follow the story of an African Prince who endured the humiliation of slavery without losing his dignity or hope for freedom in Prince Among Slaves. The Better Hour takes place decades later in British Society where one man, inspired by faith, uses his political and social influence to abolish slavery in the British Empire. Discover the more recent events of our nation's first and only college lacrosse team at a historically black institution in The Morgan Lacrosse Story. Explore the rich and vibrant heritage and cultural contributions of African Americans through this special slate of programming offered from PBS.moreless
