Witness: Black History Month

Airs Sunday, February 10, 2019, at 6 p.m. The BBC World Service presents a special hour-long edition of its Witness program, with incredible, first-person interviews about the African-American experience. Audiences will travel back to an iconic photograph from the civil rights campaign with Gloria Richardson. They'll hear the struggle for fair pay from Doug Williams, the first African American quarterback to play in the Superbowl. And Congresswoman Barbara Lee reflects on the moral stand she took in 2001 against the open-ended Global War on Terror. Witness presents stories that are inspiring, harrowing, and richly told.
