Centric, today's 24-hour music and entertainment channel for African American and multicultural viewers, is celebrating Black History Month by bringing back the best in black music and comedy. Centric's special selection of weekend shows highlights not only the cultural contributions of African Americans, but their undeniable shaping of the American cultural landscape.

"Black History Month - today more than ever - is a reason to celebrate our culture, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, especially having just commemorated the 84th birthday celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the re-election of President Barack Obama," said Centric Executive Vice President and General Manager, Paxton Baker. "Centric viewers and music lovers will get a chance to experience some of their favorite artists, like the legendary late Whitney Houston and one of the top R&B groups of all time, New Edition, like never before with exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage."

Kicking off the month and getting straight into the groove, from February 2 -3, Centric will showcase the Soul Train/Don Cornelius Weekend. With January 31 as the one year anniversary of Don Cornelius' death, this weekend will highlight the amazing Don Cornelius documentary, Don Cornelius: Visionary, Trailblazer & Cultural Icon, along with new episodes of Culture List featuring Charlie Wilson on the heels of his new album, Love, Charlie - and more.

February 9-10 will feature some of the greatest musical talent to hit the charts. During the Whitney Houston/New Edition Weekend viewers will see the never-before seen documentary, Whitney Houston: Legend, with exclusive footage and interviews; get a behind the scenes look at one of the most successful R&B's groups to date in Being: New Edition and jam to four music blocks featuring Bell Biv DeVoe, Boyz II Men and ABC; Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill; Bobby Brown, and New Edition.

From Feb 16-17, Centric will celebrate America's favorite family with the Cosby Show & Jazz Weekend. America's beloved dad loved jazz and related forms, so episodes airing during this weekend will feature legendary artists from Dizzy Gillespie and Lena Horne to Stevie Wonder, BB King and Miriam Makeba.

Feb 23 -24, Stevie Wonder headlines in the October 2012 world premiere of the UN Day Concert "A Message of Peace featuring UN Messenger Stevie Wonder." Commemorating the founding of the United Nations, the concert honors its work and the work of its sister organizations and agencies. The 2012 UN Day Concert features performances by Stevie Wonder, Sting, Wyclef Jean, Valerie Simpson, Estelle, Elle Varner and other international artists.
