PBS, the Public Broadcasting Service, is expanding its digital platform. The nonprofit television network has announced the launch of Black Culture Connection, an online guide to films, stories and other resources about the black experience in the realms of history and culture. The website, currently in its beginning stages, will evolve into a larger digital resource over the course of the year:

We're committed to bringing you the best of PBS and helping you explore Black history and culture around the world through our award-winning programs, special online events, chats … and more!  

We are in beta and continuing to grow, but invite you to join our journey over the next year. You will be able to connect with award-winning documentaries like Freedom Riders and The Interrupters, new web original productions like Black Folk Don't, live chats with your favorite filmmakers, and PBS member stations to help you explore black history and culture locally in your community.

This is only the first phase of a larger online experience coming to PBS.org. We'll continue to add new features over the next several months.
