WGBH Say Brother Archives Online

A total of 215 Say Brother episodes from 1968 to 1982 have been organized and preserved by the WGBH Media Archives and Preservation Center through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. One of television’s longest running program series by, for and about the African American community, Say Brother (now known as Basic Black) was born at a milestone moment in America’s history. The people and issues the show turned its lens on through the years tell, in capsule form, the history of both Black America and the city of Boston from the Civil Rights movement through the era of Black Power and the significant increase of numbers in the Black middle class.
