The Paley Center is celebrating Black History Month with an immersive exhibit experience and panel discussions to honor the legacy and achievements of iconic Black on-screen talent, creatives, and influencers over television’s nine decades. There will be an exclusive virtual event on February 3 with the cast of ABC’s reboot of The Wonder Years, a dedicated exhibit for OWN Network’s Queen Sugar with a recreated set from Ava DuVernay's series called "Aunt Vi's Prized Pie and Diner," a spotlight to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Sanford and Son, and the centennial of comedy legend Redd Foxx, a gallery exhibit featuring milestones throughout the decades of Black TV and in the careers of many of its most accomplished figures, costumes from Maya Rudolph’s “Vice President Kamala Harris” and Kenan Thompson’s “Diondre Cole” from Saturday Night Live, interactive trivia with questions about notable onscreen personalities and creative visionaries in Black TV history, and family fun and educational programming including arts & crafts, classes and more. Plus, each day of the exhibit there will be a custom loop of programs from the Paley Archive at 12:10pm on weekdays and 11:10am on weekends.
