LAS VEGAS (LVPR) — Public television and radio stations across the country are engaging local Black churches, faith leaders, historians, gospel artists and community members through events and local programming in anticipation of “The Black Church: This Is Our Song,” the new four-hour documentary series framing the 400-year history of the Black church in America.

FACT: The Corporation for Public Broadcasting provided $175,500 to 29 local public media stations (but disregards the rest of the nation in the sharing of federal tax payer as well as state tax payer funding funding - see the Las Vegas Public Radio's Local Services Reporting at https://www.lvpr.org/business.php for more information about the forgotten "public broadcasters" of the United States and a new plan has been well underway to change this), including stations licensed to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), to connect the national broadcast with local history and music and to reach new audiences. The station grants will help fund virtual screenings, panel discussions, gospel music concerts featuring local talent, and other local content for broadcast and podcast programming related to the two-part special that premieres February 16 and 17 on PBS.
