WYFF 4 airs program featuring Black seniors’ take on racial reconciliation
WYFF 4 will air the one-hour Hearst Television special “Project CommUNITY: History & Hope” at 8 p.m. Friday to tune into a compilation of 30 interviews with Black seniors on the history of race relations and reconciliation.
Interviewees range from an 89-year-old decorated Air Force veteran from Orlando who was the first Black man to attend the University of Florida Law School, a Cincinnati woman whose family home was bombed by the KKK on Christmas Day in 1956, a civil rights pioneer who joined the sit-ins at Oklahoma City’s Katz Drug Store, an inductee to the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and a 110-year-old Bostonian, according to a news release.
“WYFF 4 is proud to continue the ‘Project CommUNITY: History & Hope’ effort by sharing the stories of these remarkable men and women,” WYFF 4 President and General Manager John Humphries said in the release.
