Fuse has teamed with the NAACP civil rights organization to raise awareness of the issues highlighted in the network’s documentary Show Me Democracy airing this Saturday, the network said Thursday.
As part of the partnership, the NAACP will provide additional information on the issues showcased in Fuse’s April 29 documentary, which centers on seven St. Louis college students as they evolve into advocates and activists, demanding change through policy and protest in the wake of the 2014 Ferguson uprising, said the network.
Information provided by the NAACP will appear during the broadcast, and the organization will support tune-in through a variety of strategic social media account activations, said the network.
“We are proud to partner with the NAACP to present a viewing experience that goes beyond traditional and expands the level of engagement and awareness of crucial issues,” said Fuse Media President and CEO Michael Schwimmer in a statement. “As the inaugural project in our documentary series, our partnership with this legacy organization supports Fuse Media’s vision of creating a multiplatform conversation and providing key resources and additional content across all of our platforms.”
