Black Press Invited to Sit Far Left of The Oscar Awards Red Carpet

March 7, 2010

Zennie Abraham, Founding Executive Producer of the national show “The Blog Report With Zennie62” On The CoLoursTV Network was on the scene for this year's 82nd Annual Oscar Awards setup day on The Red Carpet where hundreds of media outlets prepare for coverage of the show.

Zennie had the opportunity to speak briefly with Jamal Finkely and Mike Melendy of Blacktree TV, and during their conversation they noticed something very different: A segregated section for “black media.”

That's right folks, three African American media outlets (BET, TV One, and American Urban Radio) are all grouped in one place near the very end of The Red Carpet making it both an honor and an insult.
