HBO. CNN. BET. These cable stations have revolutionized our television viewing experience and our culture as a whole. In 1979, cable was still an emerging technology, but one that brothers Clinton and Carl Galloway knew was worth pursuing.
The Galloway brothers, both young, African-American professionals living in Los Angeles, had a dream of making sure that this technological bridge to the future was equally accessible to the most impoverished area of the city--South Central L.A. In a surprising turn of events, the brothers' struggle to bring this technology to 180,000 households reached the national level: starting at the local district courts and leading all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. This journey is documented in the new book, Anatomy of a Hustle: Cable Comes to South Central L.A. Join us as author Clinton Galloway outlines the reality of trying to bring cable to South Central L.A.
