Black History Month is an annual observance in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom of the contributions of those of African ancestry to those nations. Celebrated annually in the United States and Canada in February, and in October in the UK, Black History Month is an important time to nurture interest in the past while at the same time fostering a sense of pride in the present. During the month of February, Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior have pledged to do just that through their ‘Be Inspired’ special programming, focusing on inspiring stories of African-Americans.
“As television programmers, we work every day to better serve our kid viewers by reflecting the diverse and varied world they live in,” comments Paul DeBenedittis, Senior Vice President, Programming Strategy, Disney Channels Worldwide, “and our ‘Be Inspired’ programming is designed to give them access to stories that can spark their deeper exploration into the rich and celebrated history of African-Americans.”
