Liberty and Slavery: The Paradox of America’s Founding Fathers

Dear Viewers and Listeners:

This month SCETV offers a new “SCETV Presents” special to the nation. Liberty and Slavery: The Paradox of America’s Founding Fathers takes a unique look at how our founding fathers struggled for liberty and equality, while at the same time embracing slavery.

We again broadcast the annual Black History Teleconference, The Struggle Continues: Crisis in Black Education. Also offered nationally, this program gives students the chance to talk to prominent African Americans about their paths to success.

For our viewers who are not football fans, SCETV offers an alternative with our own “Super Sunday” programming on February 5.  Beginning at 1:30 and continuing all afternoon, you can tune in to specials with Rick Steves, Andre Rieu, Dr. Daniel Amen, and the always popular Rhythm and Blues 40.

If you have missed any of Masterpiece’s sweeping drama Victoria, now’s the time to catch up. SCETV offers a mini-marathon of the first six episodes on February 26 beginning at 4 p.m., with the final episode airing March 5. Henry Louis Gates returns to host Africa’s Great Civilizations, an exploration of the grandeur of the civilizations that once flourished across the African continent.

SC Public Radio’s “No Pledge Drive” Pledge Drive was so popular last year, we’ve giving it another go. We’re asking listeners to support their favorite radio programs without interrupting the programming—so please let us know if you approve by showing your support!
