Diversity Fund picks grantees

12 TV projects to receive $6 million in grants

The Corp. for Public Broadcasting has selected 12 television projects to receive $6 million in grants from its Diversity Fund.

Fund — part of CPB’s “I Too Am America” initiative — recognizes programming that explores America’s cultural heritage.

Recipients were selected from 80 funding proposals and range from documentaries to outreach projects. Final dollar amounts are subject to successful completion of contract negotiations.

Grantees include “The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow,” a four-part series about the African-American struggle during segregation; doc “Asian American Odyssey,” with personal perspectives from prominent Asian-Americans; mentoring project “Diverse Voices,” which seeks and supports producing talent for PBS program “P.O.V.”; and “The Meaning of Food,” which uses food as a springboard for exploring cultural diversity.

Nonprofit CPB was created by Congress in 1967 and is the largest single source of funds for pubcasters.
