Atlanta Public Schools salutes the heroes of Black History Month with compelling programming on its two television channels. First we invite you to flip to Channel 22 to watch “A History of Black Achievement in America,” an original, eight-part series that documents black achievement in American history, its defining role in the growth of the country, and its influence on current events. Presented by James Avery, the series highlights the many contributions of black Americans who have influenced our culture, enriched our society with their achievements, and shaped the history of the United States.
Then there’s this month’s episode of “APS Today,” on PBA30. The February edition is hosted by Maynard H. Jackson High students Alexus Montalvo and Montanez Baugh (pictured, above) as we feature five African-American APS graduates who have established themselves in various professions and civic causes. The show airs Monday, Feb. 14, at 11 p.m.
