    now after brother Sutton retired all that was wiped out
    when his kids took over


    most people know what happened when Cosby tried to purchase channel 4 but we had 70 billion compared to 1 trillion today

    can any one imagine the impact on the community nation wide of folks like

    Bob Law, Del Schields, and Gary Byrd
    were on black owned television stations?


    can you imagine the impact on the education,
    inspiration and edification of ones family from being able to watch the
    above mentioned scholars and activists, and those who have passed on in video?
    not on youtube but on our own television free UHF and VHF HDTV channels?
