  •     In mid-1973 when NBN fed its initial newscast to then 35 affiliated radio stations; Martin Luther King's assassination, back in April of 1968, was still tugging at the hearts of American citizens of all persuasions. In his book, "can't get HERE from THERE", Vince Sanders, skillfully points out that in spite of the paucity of experience and resources, African Americans needed to tell their version of life in America.This agenda necessitated a media form with the capabilities of delineating and distributing the true effects of the 1960s civil rights movement on the citizens of America--and according to author Vince Sanders--the National Black Network was it!Sanders made liberal use of the names of many of the nation's best-known celebrities and dignitaries in his efforts to illustrate how and when the network--worked or didn't work. That list included such names as President Jimmy Carter, Ambassador Andrew Young, Actor Ossie Davis, his Actress wife Ruby Dee, along with Rev. Jesse Jackson, Comedic actor Bill Cosby, Representatives Barbara Jordan and Shirley Chisholm, et al.
