BET Highlights 30 Years

 NEW YORK - BET will revisit 30 memorable moments and movements in the three decades since its birth with the network, prime-time premiere of BET 30: MOMENTS & MOVEMENTS. From entertainment empires, to world-shifting disasters, to incidents that have changed our world, this special takes a distinctive look at the events that have shaped Black culture and consciousness over the past 30 years from a personal and intimate narrative. This two-hour special shines a light on the seminal moments in American culture that were shaped and created by rare and remarkable African-American personalities.

BET 30: MOMENTS AND MOVEMENTS includes a look at "police brutality" through the eyes of Rodney King; "the September 11 attacks" from the personal insight of Melodie Homer, widow of one of the pilots of Flight 93; and explores hip-hop's commercial rise from the perspective of rap icon Jay-Z. From the effect the Cosby family had in American households to Obama's meteoric rise to Spike Lee and the emergence of black filmmakers to the crack and HIV/AIDS epidemics devastating urban communities, BET 30:MOMENTS AND MOVEMENTS covers these moments and their influence on African-American and world culture from a distinctive viewpoint.

BET 30: MOMENTS AND MOVEMENTS explores the significance of these events with pioneers, celebrities and everyday people who helped impact and who were impacted by these thirty unique focal points. Featuring poignant, emotional interviews with luminaries like Jay-Z, Tyra Banks, John Singleton, Vanessa Williams, Lisa Leslie, Ed Gordon, Rodney King and many more, this retrospective examines these occasions through their surprisingly personal and candid narratives.
