Arizona PBS is pleased to present the Emmy®- winning digital-first series, “Black in Arizona.” Stream the series on our YouTube channel, @arizonapbs, here on the website, or on the PBS App.

Comprised of six episodes, which first premiered to our digital audience, “Black in Arizona” aims to explore what it’s like to be Black in our community, as well as spotlight the contributions of some of the most impactful Black Arizonans in the state’s history.

“As Arizona’s leading storyteller, we’re proud to shine a spotlight on the Black experience in our state,” said former Arizona PBS General Manager Adrienne R. Fairwell. “A great example of our renewed focus on local programming, it is our hope that projects like ‘Black in Arizona’ will help foster an environment of empathy and respect between citizens with different backgrounds.”

Among the trailblazers featured in this series are Chandler City Councilmember Christine Ellis, former Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans, community leader Lincoln Ragsdale Jr. and small business owner Larry White Jr.
