For over 50 years, Tony Brown’s Journal never shied away from controversy (“No Black Lies, No White Lies -- Only The Truth”), the series was one of the first to report nationally on the infamous “Tuskegee Experiment,” shined a spotlight on the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921 and offered a platform for a galaxy of African-American luminaries.
Doug McHenry, CEO of Soul of the South Television (SSN-TV), announced that SSN-TV will begin carrying selected episodes of the historic series, Tony Brown’s Journal. This groundbreaking television program that was a weekly staple in households for over 40 years, is back on SSN-TV.
WATCH Tony Brown’s Journal Monday - Friday -- 6:30pm (CT) and 10pm (CT) on Soul of The South Television Network in selected markets nationwide: New York (WDVB-CD); Houston (KHLM-DT); Orlando-Daytona Bch, Melbourne (WZXZ-CA); Jackson (WLOO-DT); Nashville (WJDE-LD); Little Rock-Pine Bluff (KKYK-CD and KMYA-DT); Dayton (WRCX-LP); and Beaumont-Port Arthur (KUMY-LD).
In 1970, five years after the Watts Riots in Los Angeles, two years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., if African Americans wanted to see people who looked like them, their choices were limited. Sure, Greg Morrison was in Mission Impossible, Peggy Fisher was in Mannix and of course there was The Flip Wilson Show featuring his “muse” Geraldine!
Tony Brown: Are you from the famous Ferguson clan from Charleston, West Virginia, owners of the Black-owned Ferguson theater in Charleston, West Virginia?
