NBJC launches a new online broadcast

The D.C.-based National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) announced Aug. 15 that the organization is joining those who already broadcast online, such as the Human Rights Campaign.

”The Black LGBT revolution will be televised,” the announcement reads, borrowing from the famous line by poet Gil Scott-Heron and repeated by Public Enemy, among others.

The first of the group’s monthly episodes runs about three minutes and offers an introduction by NBJC’s executive director and CEO, H. Alexander Robinson, followed by a presentation highlighting the organization’s work and purpose. Founded in 2003, NBJC advocates on behalf of black ”same-gender-loving, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people” regarding civil rights, social justice and toward ending racism and homophobia.

The premier episode is posted on the group’s Web site, www.nbjcoalition.org. Future episodes are set to offer news and entertainment in line with NBJC’s mission, available both on NBJC site and YouTube.
