Silver Spring, MD – This February, TV One will take a look back at dramatic, musical, and comedic portrayals of African American life from the 70s, 80s and early 90s during their “Way Black When” celebration of Black History Month.

During primetime each weeknight, TV One will spotlight a variety of black cult classics in film, television, comedy and music, from “The Richard Pryor Show” to “Cleopatra Jones,” with commentary from industry experts including actresses/actors, producers and musical artists who helped create, or were influenced by such celebrated productions.

During each of the four weeks during February, TV One will focus on one of four genres: Comedy/Variety; Classic Films/Film Soundtracks; Classic Sitcoms, and Blaxploitation Movies.

“The manner in which our culture has been portrayed in film and television provides an interesting and provocative lens through which to view our history over the past 40 years,” said TV One Senior Vice President of Original Programming Toni Judkins. “With the help of a number of the actors, comedians, producers and directors involved, we not only want to spotlight that programming, but tell a story about how it relates to where our culture and society are today.”
