Soon we'll record the material for Season 2 of Blackademics Television, which airs on KLRU PBS TV Austin, and lives online at PBS.org. The event will be free to the public and I am hoping that you will help spread the word and will join us as well.
This season's presenters will include playwrights, grammy award winning scholar musicians, and a range of activist and new media scholars. Their presentations will be recorded before a live studio audiences over two nights:
Doors will open each night at and shooting will start at .
We'll record at KLRU Studio 6A (the Historic Austin City Limits Stage), located at 2504 Whitis Avenue on the edge of the UT campus.
For those who are less familiar with the Blackademics concept, think TED talks for Black Studies and you are getting close.
Or you can just view Season 1 on-line at PBS.org (put "Blackademics" in the search box and episodes will come right up).
And for those who'd like to know who is presenting what and when, we'll be updating our web site, Blackademicstv.com, with that information.
Alright, that is all for now …
You are among my friends and colleagues, so I wanted to send you word ahead of the push.
Thanks for your ongoing support and see you soon.
