WGPR TV HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Experience the amazing story of the first African American owned and operated television station in the United States. From broadcast pioneer to historical landmark, WGPR provided African-Americans the opportunity to work “behind the camera” in producing, directing and other roles which placed content on air. This event will take guests through a time traveled experience of WGPR history with music, dancers, fashion and mock broadcasts.
