Celebrate Black Culture in Film!
“Mr. Soul” The documentary film, Mr. Soul! (2018) celebrates the groundbreaking PBS series SOUL! from its genesis to its eventual loss of funding, against the backdrop of a swiftly changing political and social landscape. From 1968 to 1973, the public television variety show SOUL!, guided by the enigmatic producer and host Ellis Haizlip, offered an unfiltered, uncompromising celebration of Black literature, poetry, music, and politics—voices that had few other options for national exposure, and, as a result, found the program an improbable place to call home.

The series was among the first to provide expanded images of African Americans on television, shifting the gaze from inner-city poverty and violence to the vibrancy of the Black Arts Movement.
