Dir. Melissa Haizlip | 99min, 2018

A documentary about the influential public television variety show SOUL!, which ran from 1968 to 1973 and was among the first to celebrate voices in Black literature, poetry, music, and politics.

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. The series was among the first to provide expanded images of African-Americans on television, voices that had few other options for national exposure, and, as a result, found the program an improbable place to call home. With participants’ recollections and a bevy of great archival clips, Mr. SOUL! captures a critical moment in culture whose impact continues to resonate.
