Henry Hampton and Public Television

Henry Hampton was a television executive and filmmaker whose impact on mainstream media is undisputed. Besides breaking down professional barriers that had kept African Americans from being producers of film, news and information, Hampton brought African American tellings of African American stories to mainstream television in the Eyes on the Prize PBS series. The PBS website calls Hampton :

... one of the most influential documentary filmmakers in the 20th century. His work chronicled America 's great political and social movements and set new standards for broadcast quality. Blackside, the independent film and television company he founded in 1968, completed 60 major films and media projects that amplified the voices of the poor and disenfranchised. His enduring legacy continues to influence the field in the 21st century.
