GBH to Broadcast from NAACP National Convention in Boston

Public media organization GBH is the exclusive public media partner for the NAACP’s 114th National Convention taking place in Boston from July 28 to August 1. In this role, GBH will provide extensive on-site coverage of the gathering with “Boston Public Radio and Basic Black,” the longest-running program on public television focusing on the interests of people of color. “AMERICAN EXPERIENCE,” produced at GBH, will preview a new documentary, “The Busing Battleground,” a telling of the tumultuous integration of the Boston Public Schools through a court-mandated busing plan in the 1970s. GBH CEO Susan Goldberg says, “At GBH, we are committed to covering important events, being present in our community, and representing our audiences, both in the stories we tell and how we tell them.”
