Black Journal

Before it became Tony Brown’s Journal, Black Journal was a weekly news magazine originating from NET (National Educational Television–pre-WNET) and airing nationally. Focusing on African-American culture, the tone was a mixture of serious, educational, and irreverent– in news stories, interviews (2 Black Panthers in this episode alone), profiles, and skits.
