Dear Viewers and Listeners:

This month ETV is again participating in the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s initiative, American Graduate Day, Oct. 3 beginning at 11 a.m. This multi-platform project, whose goal is to help students stay on the path to high school graduation, includes a full-day broadcast that highlights success stories across the nation, segments geared to reach adults who have already dropped out, online classroom resources, and viewer participation via Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #AmGrad.

A new Carolina Stories program, Georgia O’Keeffe: A Woman on Paper, debuts this month, produced in conjunction with upcoming O’Keeffe exhibits at the Columbia Museum of Art and Columbia College. The documentary focuses on the artist’s time spent in Columbia in 1915 and 1916, where she was an instructor at Columbia College, and created the charcoal drawings that helped establish her career. It was produced and directed by Dave Adams; Steve Folks is executive producer.

An SCETV Presents special, Circle Unbroken: A Gullah Journey from Africa to America, is a visual celebration of the Gullah people in words and music, presented by Gullah advocate and storyteller Anita Singleton-Prather.

South Carolina Public Radio has added two new series to its news service schedule. Bullseye with Jesse Thorn is a look at what’s going on in popular culture; Snap Judgment is an hour of nonfiction storytelling based on a common theme. And our radio Fall Fundraising campaign continues; I join everyone at S.C. Public Radio in thanking you for your support!
