Tuesday, February 15 at 10 p.m. – Adjust Your Color: The Truth of Petey Greene, An Independent Lens film

(Rochester, NY) America's original shock-jock, Petey Greene overcame poverty, drug addiction and prison time to "tell it like it is," shocking and entertaining everyone from the ghetto to the White House. Narrated by Don Cheadle, Adjust Your Color, airing Tuesday, February 15 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11), looks at how his explosive language and brash style unsettled the establishment as he battled both the system and his own demons on a journey to becoming a leading activist during some of the most tumultuous years in recent history.
