Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — pprscribe @ 9:30 am

If you only do one thing to observe Black History Month, make that thing be to watch this documentary:

THE BLACK LIST: VOL. 2 profiles some of today’s most fascinating African- Americans. From the childhood inspirations that shaped their ambitions, to the evolving American landscape they helped define, to the importance of preserving a unique cultural identity for future generations, these prominent individuals offer a unique look into the zeitgeist of black America, redefining the traditional pejorative notion of a blacklist.

The list of people featured in THE BLACK LIST: VOL. 2 includes activist and artist Majora Carter; activist and academic Angela Davis; producer Suzanne de Passe; actor Laurence Fishburne; Anglican Bishop Barbara Harris; Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick; pastor T.D. Jakes; physician and academic Valerie Montgomery-Rice, M.D.; filmmaker Tyler Perry; singer Charley Pride; fashion designer Patrick Robinson; actress Maya Rudolph; musician RZA; filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles; and artist Kara Walker.

Check your local HBO listings. The program begins airing tonight (Thurs. 2/26). Information on The Black List Vol. 1 here.
