NOV 19: C-SPAN’s Book TV


Saturday, November 19 at 8 PM on C-SPAN 2 (Comcast channel 17)

The C-SPAN Cities Tour will broadcast the segments they filmed in Pittsburgh in September – including the interview they filmed at City Books. Hear five local authors present their work, including Fred Carroll of Duquesne University and his featured book, Race News: Black Journalists and the Fight for Racial Justice in the Twentieth Century. Learn about the political and professional evolution of black journalists, including the role of the Pittsburgh Courier in the quest for civil rights. Prof. Carroll was recorded at City Books.

If you miss the broadcast, C-SPAN has created a special “Pittsburgh” city web page at where each segment will be available after it airs. In addition, all video segments will be available indefinitely on their C-SPAN Video Library site at

Hope you can tune in.
