*Bounce TV, the first and only over-the-air broadcast network for African Americans, aired “Where Do We Go From Here?” — the Baton Rouge town hall meeting being produced by Bounce TV affiliate WAFB-TV on the heels of the recent racially-related violence and police shootings — to viewers nationwide when it carried the event live, uninterrupted and commercial-free on Tues. Aug. 2 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Martin Luther King III, one of the founders of Bounce TV, will participate in the conversation, along with an invited audience representing a diverse and broad range of community and civic leaders. WAFB anchors Greg Meriwether and Lauren Westbrook will moderate the discussion, set to take place in Baton Rouge. WAFB-TV is a Raycom Media station.
Bounce TV’s broadcast of “Where Do We Go From Here?” was part of its new wide-ranging initiative to encourage de-escalation training, in which it has teamed with TheRoot, the premier news, opinion and culture site for African-American influencers, to support the effort.
