Here Come the Videofreex

Wednesday, March 9 - Thursday, March 17, 2016

In 1969, a CBS executive assembled a group of young people to capture the stories of the counterculture that were being ignored by mainstream news, using the brand-new medium of video. Network brass rejected their radical pilot, but the group—who named themselves the Videofreex—stuck together. The collective’s work—from interviews with legendary activists to reports on the Anti-War, Black Power and Women’s Movements to the pirate TV station they founded in rural upstate New York—blazed a trail for truly alternative media.
