In partnership with the American Archive of Public Broadcasting, Aca-Media
has launched a new podcast called "Presenting the Past," which features a
series of informed conversations with scholars, educators, industry
professionals, researchers, archivists, and others about significant
events, issues, and topics documented in the more than 70 years of
programming available in the American Archive of Public Broadcasting

In the first episode of “Presenting the Past,” film scholar Michelle Kelley
highlights a collection of 127 unedited interviews conducted for the
landmark PBS documentary series Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights
Years, 1954–1965, first broadcast in January 1987. Kelley provides context
for the making of the series and explores examples of interviews that give
different, yet valuable, perspectives on the civil rights movement than the
one presented in the final cut of the series. Visit

In the second episode of “Presenting the Past,” we talk with broadcast
historian Allison Perlman about the AAPB special collection "On the Right:
NET and Modern Conservatism" and the state of conservative movement in the
1960s. What challenges did conservatives face following World War II and
the defeat of Barry Goldwater? What were the debates and fault lines within
the movement? And how did public media try to make sense of the
conservative movement in this period when its future was unclear? Visit
