WCTE PBS Student Art Exhibition- Celebrating Black History Heroes

Come out and see the amazing work of some talented middle and high school student artists!  Throughout Black History Month, students at participating schools were offered a chance to enter an art contest, with a chance to win cash prizes. 


On display at WCTE's lobby gallery space (229 E. Broad St. Cookeville, TN 38501), this exhibit will be open to the public from March 31-April 14.  This amazing artwork is from students of White County High School, Cumberland County High School, Algood Middle School, and Prescott South Middle School.  

Feb. 22nd for a Free Screening at Cumberland County Playhouse!

In "Becoming Frederick Douglass," we'll discover how a man born into slavery became one of the most influential voices for democracy in American history. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stanley Nelson explores the role Douglass played in securing the right to freedom for African Americans.

"Harriet Tubman: Visions of Freedom," takes us beyond the legend to meet the inspiring woman who repeatedly risked her own life and freedom to liberate others from slavery. Born 200 years ago in Maryland, Harriet Tubman was a conductor of the Underground Railroad, a Civil War scout, nurse and spy, and one of the greatest freedom fighters in our nation’s history.

Both of these inspiring films are streaming now for WCTE Passport members. This member benefit allows you to stream thousands of hours of incredible programming, anytime from anywhere!
