David Alan Grier Stars Hits Broadway In Porgy & Bess
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

This weekend on an all-new Our World with Black Enterprise, host Marc Lamont Hill catches up with actor David Alan Grier, co-star of the revived Broadway hit play, Porgy & Bess at The Richard Rogers Theater. In this exclusive All Access interview, Grier talks about the classic love story being performed for a new generation and the spike in Black participation on Broadway this theater season.

Then, Our World goes On The Record with three digital media pros to discuss the claim that African Americans are still falling victim to the Digital Divide. Is it true? TheRoot.com Managing Editor Sheryl Huggins Salomon, TheGrio.com and YourBlackWorld.com Contributor Stephanie Humphrey, and Black Enterprise Marketing and Digital Strategy Director Patricia Césaire lay out the issues and what’s at stake if African Americans don’t aggressively engage with technology as more than just consumers.

Our Slice of Life profiles Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, the director of The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, New York.

Our World with Black Enterprise airs this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on TV One and on local stations across the country.  Check your local listings and visit www.blackenterprise.com/ourworld for additional time and station information.
