Africa: ESPN to Screen Black Magic


Sports channel ESPN will this week screen 'Black Magic', a film narrated by Academy Award nominee actor Samuel L. Jackson, jazz great Wynton Marsalis and NBA basketball star Chris Paul. Screening will be on DStv's channel 230 on March 19 at 7pm while Part II will be repeated on March 20 at 10am.

Telling the story of injustice, which characterised the Civil Rights Movement in America, 'Black Magic' is told through the lives of basketball players and coaches who attended and worked at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Scheduled to be screened in two parts, 'Black Magic' will be presented commercial free by Russell Athletic Group and State Farm.
