At an evening reception and screening hosted by the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation at the Times Center in Midtown Manhattan last night, major civic and civil rights figures celebrated the newest PBS series by Emmy and Peabody-award winning Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., “Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise.”

“Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise” is a two-part, four-hour documentary series hosted, executive produced and written by Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., who embarks on a deeply personal journey through the last fifty years of African American history. Joined by leading scholars, celebrities, and a dynamic cast of people who shaped these years, Gates travels from the victories of the civil rights movement up to today, asking profound questions about the state of black America—and our nation as a whole.

The documentary will premiere on PBS stations nationwide on November 15 and 22, 2016 at 8/7c.

Among the leading supporters of last night’s launch event were the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation, in partnership with Hoover Milstein and Emigrant Bank.
