Way Black When Airing for Black History Month


I cannot tell you how excited I am about Way Black When, a month long tribute to African American pop culture from the 70s, 80s and 90s, in commemoration of Black History Month! TV One is airing Way Black When every weekday during the month of February. Check out their schedule. They are featuring tons of awesome musical guests and interviews with some of our favorite faces of those eras, such as Antonio Fargas and Jayne Kennedy! The hosts are Sinbad, Niecy Nash and Christopher Reid. This special starts airing on Monday, January 31st at 10pm! Be there!

To honor Black History Month here on my blog, I'll be doing a couple of features throughout the month.

I watched the first episode last night. Pretty good, although Sinbad was a little too excited. Loved seeing Antonio Fargas though. He looks fantastic!

Keep telling that history:

Read the greatest fictionalized 'historical novel', Rescue at Pine Ridge, the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. The website is: http://www.rescueatpineridge.com This is the greatest story of Black Military History...5 stars Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Youtube commercials are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD66NUKmZPs and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVslyHmDy9A&feature=related

Rescue at Pine Ridge is the story of the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers. The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry.

I know you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote the story that embodied the Native Americans, Outlaws and African-American/Black soldiers, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America.

The novel was taken from my mini-series movie with the same title, “RaPR” to keep the story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn’t like telling our stories…its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman, James Whitmore Jr. and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with.

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for the US Postal System in Montana, in the 1890's, “spread the word”.

Peace.
