DC Office of Cable TV, Film, Music, Entertainment Nabs 2nd Emmy Nomination

The D.C. Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment (OCTFME) has been nominated for an Emmy award for the second consecutive year by a chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The nomination for “Black History through Song,” an original OCTFME-produced documentary on the history of Black America, and the District’s pivotal role, is in the Historical/Cultural – Program/Special Category.

“‘Black History through Song’ is the story of how African Americans have persevered and prospered through the strength of family, community and faith. From living on the plantation to present day events, at the center of the struggles and victories, there has always been music,” said OCTFME Director Angie M. Gates. “Songs of inspiration have underscored the fight for freedom, civil rights and social justice. The District of Columbia has always had a critical place in that battle; a place where leaders have come and inspired immeasurable contributions to black history both nationally and globally. ‘Black History through Song’ pays homage to the role that the District of Columbia continues to play in the fight for civil and social justice.”

OCTFME garnered its first Emmy in 2018 for its magazine-style talk show “The 202,” winning in the Interview/Discussion category for its episode on Bell Biv DeVoe.

This year’s winners and awards will be presented at the 61st Emmy Awards gala on Saturday, June 22 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in North Bethesda, Maryland.
