'GoodWorks with Rahman Khan' Season Three Premieres April 4

Season three of GoodWorks with Rahman Khan premieres on Charlotte’s PBS affiliate WTVI, Sunday, April 4 at 12 p.m. Viewers can expect the show to once again live up to its motto of being "All Good, All the Time." GoodWorks with Rahman Khan focuses on bringing the good in all of us to the forefront, which is something that’s not always celebrated in our community or in the media.

First up on the long list of notable names appearing this season, world renowned author and scholar Dr. Cornel West sits down with the show’s host Rahman Khan. In a candid conversation, the man known for many titles including civil rights activist, philosopher, critic, and professor opens up about his journey that started from very humble beginnings. West’s insights on everything from politics to life are thought provoking.

Good works and hip-hop aren’t usually talked about in the same breath. However, one woman is using her knowledge and love for hip-hop culture to make a positive difference in the life of a child. Khan introduces viewers to Chanell Ketchmore, the founder of Ketchmore Kids. Her organization is breaking down barriers and the negative stereotypes associated with youth and rap music.
