Alabama: Journey Proud Documentary Series
Journey Proud is a new documentary series produced by Alabama Public Television (APT) and the Alabama State Council on the Arts (ASCA) highlighting the people, customs and traditions of Alabama. The series is hosted by folklorist Joey Brackner, director of the Alabama Center for Traditional Culture, the folklife division of ASCA. APT Executive Producer Chris Holmes cites the center’s extensive fieldwork with the fascinating people and places of Alabama as his inspiration for creating the series. Journey Proud, which premieres this October on APT, is a new format and forum for ASCA to continue its work of highlighting and supporting the cultural diversity of the state. Journey Proud episodes will be available on-line, and the series will be enhanced by social media and APT’s on-line educational resource, APTPLUS®. The program is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Alabama Humanities Foundation, Alabama Power Company, Daniel Foundation of Alabama, Community Foundation of South Alabama and Sybil H. Smith Charitable Trust. For more information, contact Joey Brackner.
