Finding Black History Gems on TV: Do you know about OvationTV?

Flipping around late last night while sipping a Pepto cocktail with Ginger Ale chaser (too much SuperBowl celebration), I stumbled across Ovation TV. Ovation is what A&E started out like before they went all reality on us. (12 straight hours of Dog the Bounty Hunter is a little much).

Anyway, on Ovation last night: They showed a two-hour documentary on Chess Blues Legend Howlin' Wolf (brilliant) followed by an hour of Marvin Gaye concert footage from different events. Just out of curiosity, I consulted my guide to see what else they had on deck for Black History Month. This evening there's a show called Impact, discussing the impact of certain songs on American culture. Tonight it's Chuck Berry's Maybellene. Tomorrow night, Run-DMC's Walk this Way. Also tomorrow night a documentary on Nat King Cole followed by an expose on the Rise and Fall of Death Row Records… SOLD!

Not sure which cable systems it's on, check the website to find it in your area.


Who has Black History programming to share with the group?
