Coming Soon of the Day: Neil Degrasse Tyson Will Host the Sequel of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos
Though it’s been quietly in the works since 2011, Fox has officially confirmed that Carl Sagan’s monumental 1970 sci-ed miniseries Cosmos: A Personal Voyage will be getting an updated sequel next year, which will consist of 13 episodes produced by Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane and hosted by one of the Internet’s most celebrated astrophysicists, Neil Degrasse Tyson. Fox is hoping the show will have as much as of cultural impact as Carl Sagan’s original series, which still remains one of the most watched PBS series in the world to this day.

May 10, 1963: Birmingham Campaign Ends in Victory
On this day in 1963, the Birmingham Campaign ended with a victory. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Fred Shuttlesworth signed a truce agreement with local officials to outline a ‘limited desegregation plan,’ which promised to:
- Remove “White Only” and “Black Only” signs from restrooms and drinking fountains in downtown Birmingham
- Desegregate lunch counters
- Deploy a “Negro job improvement plan”
- Release jailed demonstrators
- Create a biracial committee to monitor the agreement
Desegregation, however, would take place slowly over the next few months. Learn more about the Birmingham Campaign with PBS Black Culture Connection.
