WHRO Public Media producers brought home three awards last weekend during the Salute to Excellence Awards held by the National Assoociation of Black Journalists. See the winning entries below.
Another View’s Round Table Show “Colorism” won in the Best Public Affairs Segment Category.
The name of it is "colorism" - prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group. This is a global issue and we talk about it with pundits Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander, Carol Pretlow, Allison Moore and William Brown.
The Attucks: Apollo of the South won for Best Documentary.
Musicians of the greatest caliber have performed at the Attucks, legends like Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole just to name a few.
The Curate segment on artist Titus Kaphar won for Best Long Feature.
Titus Kaphar is an artist who seeks to dislodge history from its status as the "past" in order to unearth its contemporary relevance. His aim is to reveal something of what has been lost and to investigate the power of rewritten history.
Congratulations to the WHRO team!
