We’re one week late.
Every week during the month of February, Independent Lens will release a film online to celebrate Black History Month. These are films that previously aired on the PBS film series.
This week, the film that’s been made available is Adjust Your Color: The Truth of Petey Greene, which takes a look at two-time Emmy Award-winner, Petey Greene, who overcame drug addiction and a prison sentence for armed robbery, to become one of the most prominent media personalities in Washington, DC, candidly tackling topical issues like racism, poverty, drugs, among others.
Coming up next week will be: Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock; and the week after, the last of the month, End Black History Month? – a doc that questions the relevance of Black History Month.
Watch the hour-long Adjust Your Color: The Truth of Petey Greene below:
