Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) is commemorating Black History Month by highlighting a wide variety of programming and resources across both broadcast channels, numerous online sources, and community events. We hope to bring heightened visibility and greater reach and ease of access during this celebratory month to the high-quality educational and entertaining content that tpt produces. February’s programming schedule will feature selected material from MN Original, Almanac, American Masters, Independent Lens, multiple Minnesota Channel partnerships, the tpt Original documentary North Star: Minnesota’s Black Pioneers, and the award-winning national production Slavery by Another Name.
In addition to broadcasting and re-broadcasting great local and national productions on tpt 2, tpt MN and tpt LIFE, tpt has also created this online resource for all of their Black History Month content. On this site you’ll find educational resources, online streaming of shows, behind-the-scenes extras, links to further PBS resources, and much more.
