Hallowed Grounds: Sites of African American Memories is the 2016 theme for Black History Month.

The Black Press: Soldiers without Swords (86 minutes, not rated)

It recounts the largely forgotten stories of generations of Black journalists who risked life and livelihood so African Americans could represent themselves in their own words and images.
