Expanded Cooperation with AppTV
This academic year, the Center has again expanded its partnership with AppTV, Appalachian State’s student-staffed television channel that operates out of Boone. In late November, the station broadcasted the presentation of the recently-deceased Auschwitz-Birkenau survivor Dr. Susan Cernyak-Spatz z’’l. A frequent guest of the Center, Cernyak-Spatz z’’l educated thousands in the High Country alone, never tiring to fight the rising tide of antisemitism. In a cooperation with the USC Shoah Foundation, LA, the broadcast also included footage from her 1990s interview for the Visual History Archive. In March, AppTV aired the Center-organized talk by the Rev. Dr. Bradford Lilley, a member of the Winston-Salem chapter of the Black Panther Party in the 1970s, on black political activism and police brutality. When aired on campus screens, it stopped not just a few passersby in their tracks who then watched the Reverend speak. The Center plans to continue this cooperation with AppTV in the future.
