      "Black and Proud" aired on WILL-TV on Jan. 27, 1969. The program presented a vivid snapshot of the lives of African Americans in central Illinois. Homemaker Eunice Patterson of Urbana demonstrates her method of cooking soul food. Host Harold Bradley then talks with two professors at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign about the influence of art and music as a form of self-expression for black people. Then, a University of Illinois student group performs African dance. Later on in the program, a U of I student participates in an Afro-American fashion show. In one of several discussion segments, the founders of The Black Vanguard, a black newspaper in Danville, Illinois, talk about why they began publishing in April 1968.

One of those children was Champaign resident, Heini Halberstam. He was born in Czechoslovakia, and separated from his mother during the Nazi occupation. He believes she died in a labor camp. Halberstam said that changed his life forever. (Produced by Sean Powers/WILL)
