In celebration of Black History Month, MSG Networks will air a special lineup of programming throughout February to honor those who made a impact on sports and culture and helped shape American history.
The commemorative Black History Month programming will be highlighted by a roundtable discussion on race and sports with New York Knicks analyst and Hall of Famer Walt “Clyde” Frazier, former Knicks star and current team executive Allan Houston, and MSG host and analyst Monica McNutt.
Among the topics the three will discuss are how race evolved in basketball and making the sport more inclusive for future players. The trio will also share stories and experiences from their playing days on these issues.
Special programming will also feature a series of profiles on influential and iconic Black historical figures, such as tennis legend Arthur Ashe, golfer Charlie Sifford, and Bessie Coleman, the first Black woman to earn a pilot’s license. Those videos will air throughout MSG Network and MSG+ programming, including Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, and Devils game broadcasts.
Other content to be included with MSG PM and featured in “MSG Shorts” throughout February will profile Black-owned businesses in New York City, such as Harlem Hops and Melba’s Restaurant; the history of basketball at Dyckman Park, which hosts a top streetball tournament; and a documentary on Willie O’Ree, the first Black player in the NHL.
All of the network’s Black History Month programming can also be streamed on the MSG GO platform.
