In 1968, students from universities all across southern California marched on NBC’s studios in Burbank, CA. In the hands of one protester was a sign that read “Sarnoff is a Klingon.” But what did David Sarnoff, chairman of the board of the Radio Corporation of America, have to do with Star Trek? Join the Sarnoff Collection for our Sundays at the Sarnoff Zoom talk about the early years of color television broadcasting, and the shows that graced the small screen in the 50s and 60s.
This talk is held in conjunction with the Sarnoff Collection’s new exhibit, In Living Color, now viewable online: https://sarnoff.omeka.net/exhibits/show/in-living-color
Join us on the last Sunday of every month for Sundays at the Sarnoff, a conversation about topics from the intersection of technology, history, and culture.
