Sue Booker: A Place for Under-Served Communities to Display Their Humanity
Sue Booker was a producer at KCET from 1970 to 1973, during which time she helmed "Doin' It," KCET's first public affairs series on L.A.'s African American community. During its ten episode run, the series introduced dance, theater, dramas, documentaries, news, public affairs, and other programming that represented the various communities throughout Los Angeles. In order to be more in touch with what was going on in the community, the "Doin' It" production crew moved to The Storefront on South Broadway, tapping directly into South Central Los Angeles.
At the time, public television was becoming a platform for under-served communities to display their humanity:
