The national American Graduate public media initiative gets its own day Saturday — you can watch a live broadcast here or on your TV’s KERA World 13.2 channel from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central time. The seven-hour broadcast will feature notables ranging from Colin Powell to Brian Williams to Christine Ha, a star chef from Houston who’s also blind.
The folks behind the initiative are also producing a “Storify” of the many social media streams feeding this effort. You can get in on the conversation by tweeting with the hashtag #amgrad. (If you toss in #KERAClassof17, your tweet will also show up on our blog!)
And if that’s not enough, tune into KERA 90.1 FM at 7 p.m. Saturday for American Graduate: Crossing the Stage, a radio special hosted by Dick Gordon.
We’ll post the live stream here on Saturday. And here’s the Storify conversation so far:
