Diversity on Demand celebrates Black History Month + $25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!


Throughout the month of February, digital cable customers are just a “click away” from unlocking new revelations into some of the history, struggles and beauty that are an integral part of the African-American experience as part of cable’s Diversity On Demand initiative. Viewers will be able to access some wonderful African-American programming.

Here are just some of the highlights during the Black History Month programming for Diversity On Demand:

Milestones in Black History: A look at the history of the struggles and strife, the tragedies and the triumphs of African-Americans in the U.S., including programming on the Civil Rights era. Everyone in the family can get in on the learning with documentaries like “The Black List” examining some of the reasons for Black History Month. And kids young and old can take a trip back in time understanding the importance of historical events with “Seizing Justice: The Greensboro 4,” “On the Shoulders of Giants” and “Birds of a Feather: Tuskegee Airmen.”

Profiles in Courage: The biographies of influential African-Americans come to life with dramatic profiles and stories of acclaimed leaders and others who are not so well known—but perhaps should be, such as that of Lena Baker in “Hope & Redemption: The Lena Baker Story.”

Dramas: Programs and movies like “Independence Day” showcasing award-worthy performances from notable African-American actors such as Will Smith. You can also explore and share real-life family relationship dramas like “Braxton Family Values.”

Hearth and Home: Savor shows like “Down Home with the Neelys” that provide a look at food and other aspects of modern African-American society.

Of the People: Program content that exemplifies the contributions made by multicultural talent, shows written by, starring, directed or produced by African-Americans, like Morgan Freeman in “Million Dollar Baby.”

Powerful Portrayals: Storytelling has always been an important part of African-American culture. Drama fans can enjoy Black cinema offerings, which chronicle the challenges of African-American protagonists in a variety of ways.

That’s Entertainment: Laugh along with comedy specials such as “Chris Rock: Bigger and Blacker,” while romantic comedies warm the heart. If music is your thing, there are shows and movies such as “Ray,” the remarkable story of one of America's true musical geniuses, Ray Charles, that look into the past, present music-making of African-American artists.

I am excited by all the wonderful programs that are offered. I am also impressed that so much special programming is being offered for Black History Month. And during September 15 - October 15 you will be able to see special programming for Hispanic Heritage Month as well.

If you go and visit the Diversity on Demand Facebook page you will receive programming updates and links to trailers on Black History Month. The Facebook page will also have information on contests and giveaways. Since multicultural movies are being celebrated all year long, there will be various activities, contests, promotions, polls and trailers all the time!

I hope you will go check out the excitement and, hopefully, catch some of the great shows Diversity on Demand is offering!

  49. I'd have to say that Milestones in History would be most interesting to me. I think watching historic events is one of the best ways for me and my children to learn what the world, and people are like, and it's important to keep that spirit of learning alive!
