Have you seen Mr. Soul? Its the story of Ellis Haizlip and his WNET tv show SOUL! airing 1968-73 feat. Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Patti Labelle & James Baldwin. @mhaizlip did an amazing job and I’m excited she’ll be on @lyteup’s podcast on Tuesday!
Nixon was such a menace! Actively called for the defunding of this show and did......yet poor James Brown encouraged Black Americans to vote for this fool.
Conservatives, to this day, are still attacking pro-Black media. White supremacy runs deep.
Like seriously, check out Mama Nikki Giovanni in 1969. Absolutely amazing! @IndependentLens @mrsoulthemovie This show televised the Black Arts Movement and propelled it on a national level. #MrSoul #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackHistory
