We got this notification from one of the producers at the H2 Network, a division of The History Channel:

I just wanted to let you know that our episode of “10 Things You Don’t Know About: Civil Rights,” with Henry Rollins, that we had the pleasure of filming with you earlier this summer, will be premiering on Saturday, August 30, at 10:00 p.m. EST on H2. The program will also be available on our website.

We all really enjoyed working on this episode and greatly appreciate your participation.

“10 Things You Don’t Know About” is a very cool show that “uncovers crazy new twists and tidbits behind the historical tales, figures and places you only thought you knew.”

H2 (short for History 2) is the younger, hipper version of The History Channel, also owned by A&E Networks, with shows that include Modern Marvels, Ancient Impossible, Decoded, and The Universe.

New episodes of “10 Things You Don’t Know About” air on Saturdays at 10 EST and 11 PST.

The show’s popular and forceful host, former punk-rocker Henry Rollins, is actually an excellent interviewer, listener, commentator, and historian. You’ll see what we mean when you watch the show!

Though we cannot give away details of the Black Fives section of the episode, here are some behind the scenes pics from the filming session that took place this past June.
