America’s Untold Journey – 450 Years of the African-American Experience, is an hour-long documentary which reveals untold facts about the importance of African-American involvement in the nation’s creation.
Produced by Project 360 Media and SAM2, a division of Stephen Arnold Music, America’s Untold Journey was expanded to an hour long documentary following the overwhelmingly positive response to the half-hour show that debuted in 2015.
“It reveals a vital chapter of American history that was unknown to so many and struck a chord with viewers everywhere” says Gordon Smith, SAM2 co-founder.
“The newly expanded 60-minute format for 2016 is equally surprising, and even more uplifting.”
Last year, the half-hour version of America’s Untold Journey aired during Black History Month on more than a hundred local TV stations.
The documentary’s 2015 debut attracted large viewing audiences, as well as inspiring community events and education nationwide.
The new, expanded, hour-long version is available for local TV stations nationwide this coming February for Black History Month.
“The hour-long version reveals a lot more information,” says Smith.
“We added a new host, new graphics, new music, basically re-crafted the show.”
America’s Untold Journey chronicles the 450-year arc of continuous African American history beginning in 1565 in Spanish Florida and continuing to the present day.
Interviews with experts and vivid imagery combine to shed a fascinating new light on the role that they and their ancestors played in American history — and ultimately the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
John Heinen, former station marketing executive and founder of Project 360 Media, says his company develops compelling projects for the broadcast and cable marketplace.
“We support the efforts of independent writers and producers who want to deliver good quality programming for broadcast distribution for local television.”
