BOUNCE TV (www.bouncetv.com), the nation’s first-ever broadcast television network for African Americans, will honor BLACK HISTORY MONTH in February with “OUR HISTORY,” a month-long programming tribute which includes documentaries, specials and a new original short-form series called “Memories of My Father” featuring MARTIN LUTHER KING III sharing his personal memories and impressions of his father, the REV. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. THE CHRYSLER MOTOR COMPANY will sponsor Bounce TV’s OUR HISTORY tribute.
The “Memories of My Father” segments were filmed in EBENEZER BAPTIST CHURCH where Reverend King, Jr. began his ministry. Mr. King III, who is among the FOUNDING GROUP and BOARD OF DIRECTORS of Bounce TV, commented, “Bounce TV celebrates the African American community every day of the year. At the same time it is important as the country focuses on the contributions of African Americans to the advancement of civilization that we participate in a significant and meaningful manner. I strongly encourage people of all races and all ethnicities to watch Bounce TV all year, but particularly in February.”
