About Us

Our Village Keepers is a film production company headed by Paul Brock. Paul is a distinguished journalist born on February 10, 1932. After attending Howard University in Washington, DC, he set out on his career path. He spent more than 15 years as a radio journalist before moving to television production and reporting at WBNB in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.


From WBNB, Paul became a news director at WETA and, later, at WHUR. He was credited for bringing the first live coverage of a congressional committee hearing ever aired in the islands.


Paul was also the originator, producer, and chief fundraiser of the NAACP Nightly Convention Highlights program that aired on PBS from 1978 to 1983. He later served as producer, writer, editor, and national distributor of the NAACP Voter Education public service announcements.

Flourishing Career

Paul's success was a launching point to move into a position as fundraiser, assistant producer, and vice president of the company that produced American Playhouse. In 1994, he became media coordinator of the Village Foundation, an organization working to "repair the breach" between African-American males and the rest of society. In 2002, Paul left the Village Foundation but remains active with the NAACP since 1948. His other career highlights include:

Deputy Director of Communications (Democratic National Committee) | Vice President for News and Operations (American Urban Radio Network) | Senior Fellow for Public Affairs (Howard University's Institute for the Study of Educational Policy)

Notable Contributions

In 1975, Paul was recognized as Man of the Year by JET™ and Ebony™ magazines. He received the Black Filmmakers Award for Producer of the year in 1983. He has also been a member of the National Association of Black Journalists since 1974.
