UGA Media Archives story to feature on national news tonight (4/30)

April 30, 2013 – 2:44 PM

Just got word that coverage of the discovery of  the oldest known film of African-American baseball players will be on both “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley.” This is after coverage in the New York Times today.

The footage was discovered as part of a donation to the Home & Amateur Movies Collection in the Walter J. Brown Media & Peabody Awards Archive. It is part of the Pebble Hill Plantation Footage.

If links become available to view the segments, we’ll update this post with links.
