ELDERS MONTH is The Africa Channel's take on "Black History Month" in February. It's our way of acknowledging the daily accomplishments and lost stories of "heroes," both living and deceased, whose contributions, no matter how seemingly small, continue to create the foundations of our families and local and global communities. Not every life well lived ends up in history books. The month will be highlighted by over 80 short-form vignettes created by up-and-coming filmmakers about regular people from all walks of who have made a difference.
THE ELDERS campaign will continue after February as a year-round initiative to spur community involvement and engagement around the country.
