REVOLT TV unveiled details about its Black History Month Excellence (#BHMX) initiative today, featuring its largest offering yet of network premieres, including the return of fan-favorite talk show State of the Culture; new seasons of stand-up showcase Funny AF, short film anthology Short & Fresh, and behind-the-scenes spin-off Breakfast Club Extra; and new episodes of popular morning mainstay The Breakfast Club, REVOLT Summit Presents, Director's Reel, and more.

All shows tie into the #BHMX theme of celebrating "Black Excellence" in all fields and forms.

Also returning to THE LINEUP is a new installment in the ongoing "Anatomy of..." docu-series created in partnership with Sol & Jennia Fredrique Aponte of Full Frequency Media. Anatomy of BLACK LOVE premieres on Friday, Feb. 14th (Valentine's Day) at 9p EST. The new 30-minute special is an unapologetic and powerful look at modern love in the black community, and features intimate interviews with couples Michael Jai and Gillian White, Devale and Khadeen Ellis, Tariq Walker and Malinda Williams, and more.

The #BHMX initiative extends online to REVOLT.tv & REVOLT's social media channels, where the network will be publishing new articles and artist interviews all month long dedicated to Black Excellence, spotlighting #BHMX cultural "disruptors" on social media, and asking fans to nominate their own local #BHMX "Community Heroes". Each Friday, REVOLT will feature one of these nominated heroes across their social media accounts. Fans can contribute to the conversation online using hashtag "#BHMX".

"The programming on REVOLT represents Black Excellence and all it means for this current generation, we refer to as Gen Hip Hop," said Roma Khanna, REVOLT CEO. "This year's multiplatform campaign will shine a deserving light on current and rising leaders throughout our programming blocks, as well as celebrate community heroes that truly exemplify excellence."
