The NAACP’s 107th Annual Convention, taking place July 16-20 in Cincinnati, will spotlight the TV series “Underground.” Created by Misha Green and Joe Pokaski, the period drama focuses on the Underground Railroad in antebellum Georgia.
The series aired its 10-episode first season on WGN America earlier this year and has been picked up by the network for a second season.
The show will be spotlighted at the President’s Reception on Monday, July 18, with Green and Pokaski, along with series stars Aldis Hodge, Alano Miller and Amirah Vann, to participate along with NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks.
A special screening of the series will take place in the Harriet Tubman Theater at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati.
