Network Presents 50+ Vignettes Recognizing People

From All Walks of Life Who Have Made a Difference


February Celebration Kicks Off Year-Round Initiative

to Spur Community Involvement and Engagement


LOS ANGELES,  Jan. 30, 2015— The Africa Channel announced today it is designating February as “Elders Month,” acknowledging the accomplishments and lost stories of people whose contributions, no matter how seemingly small, continue to create the foundations of our families and local and global communities. 


The Africa Channel’s “Elders Month” celebration will be highlighted by more than 50 short-form vignettes created by up-and-coming filmmakers from the United States and Africa. The vignettes will spotlight people from all walks of life who have made a difference.


The network said it will continue the elder’s campaign after February as a year-round initiative to spur community involvement and engagement around the country.  


Lee Gaither, general manager/executive vice president, The Africa Channel, said: “Not every life well lived ends up in history books. The purpose of Elders Month, and our ongoing elder’s initiative, is to recognize everyday heroes and encourage people to make a difference in their communities.”
