In case you don't know... it's officially Black History Month folks! Excited? Planning anything? Parties? Picnics? Yes? No?

I was previously asked if S&A was doing anything special for Black History Month, and my response was EVERY frigging month is black history month at S&A!! What'chu talkin' 'bout?

Of course my inbox has been bombarded with press releases from various TV networks and organizations announcing their Black History Month programming celebrations, and I've already posted 1 or two of them... 

Here's another:

This month, Documentary Channel (DOC) honors Black History Month with a special month-long celebration of the “Best of Black Documentary Cinema” every Tuesday night in primetime.

Beginning Tuesday, February 7 with “Beah: A Black Woman Speaks” (8 p.m. ET), the series will culminate with the US television premiere of “Infiltrating Hollywood: The Rise and Fall of the Spook Who Sat By The Door,” a captivating film that examines the conspiracy and controversy behind a Hollywood picture about a black revolution shut down by the FBI due to its subject matter, on February 28 (8 p.m. ET).

This special, “Best of” celebration also marks the one-year anniversary of “Black Documentary Cinema” on Documentary Channel.

A noteworthy series of programming showcasing the work of black documentary filmmakers, “Black Documentary Cinema” features remarkable documentaries the last Tuesday of every month in primetime.

The complete “Best of Black Documentary Cinema” schedule is as follows (all times ET):

• “Beah: A Black Woman Speaks” – Tuesday, February 7 (8 p.m.)

• “Stand” – Tuesday, February 14 (8 p.m.)

• “Nobody Knows: The Untold Story of Black Mormons” – Tuesday, February 21 (8 p.m.)

• “Infiltrating Hollywood: The Rise and Fall of the Spook Who Sat By The Door” – Tuesday, February 28 (8 p.m.) 

These are actually some good documentaries by the way, so if you haven't seen them, and you have the Documentary Channel (primarily available through the DISH network - Channel 197 - and DIRECTV - Channel 267), you may want to check them out.
