WPSU Penn State Wins Two Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards

Two WPSU Penn State productions were honored with Mid-Atlantic Emmy awards at the 34th annual ceremony in Philadelphia on Saturday. “You Can’t Say That” won an Emmy in the education/schools — program/special category, while “Holding History: The Collections of Charles L. Blockson” won the human interest program/special category.

“Holding History: The Collections of Charles L. Blockson” tells of Charles Blockson’s “lifelong journey to unearth and preserve the history, culture, and contributions of people of African descent,” according to Penn State News. It was produced, directed, and co-written by Cheraine Standford and co-written by Cole Cullen. The production also appeared in Philadelphia’s BlackStar Film Festival in August, and you can watch it on YouTube.

“You Can’t Say That” documented “Penn State’s popular race and ethnic relations course” (read: SOC 119) where Sam Richards and Laurie Mulvey “paired provocative lectures and facilitated student discussions to promote cross-cultural understanding,” according to Penn State News. Executive producer Jeff Hughes and producer Lindsey Whissel Fenton worked on this production, which you can watch on YouTube.

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Mid-Atlantic chapter covers Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and parts of Ohio. This year, WPSU was nominated for seven awards and has earned 21 awards since the Mid-Atlantic chapter opened in 1981.
