- Series Description
In 1975 the purpose of Say Brother National Edition was to introduce and demonstrate to people the vitality of Black Americans and their community life. Under producer Marita Rivero and executive producer Topper Carew a series of 13 half-hour programs for the national audience was produced from existing programs.
In weekly half-hours, Say Brother National Edition presented the many dimensions of black American life as seen from one city’s vantage-point. It was in a magazine format, each segment representing a different perspective: music, history, dance, culture, drama, language, old folks, young people, families, issues, person-on-the street, and others. Series release date: 1975
