Diversity on Demand is an initiative for digital cable providers to offer their customers on-going support and commitment to multiculturalism. To kick things off, Diversity on Demand is celebrating Black History Month throughout February.
Throughout the month, digital cable users are just a “click away” from watching programming that offers to revelations into the struggles and the beauty that are an important part of the African-American history.
To receive program updates, “Like” Diversity on Demand on Facebook. From their Facebook page, you can also get links to trailers and you will see the various contests and giveaways during the promotion. Diversity on Demand on Facebook will be celebrating multicultural movies throughout the year with contests, polls, trivia, trailers and more.
Programming for Black History Month includes some of the following categories:
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 & 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.
As someone who loves history and especially movies that relate to historical subjects, I can really appreciate Diversity on Demand. I think it’s very important to offer digital cable customers programming that offers not only entertainment but quality program that can enrich their lives with knowledge.
