Welcome to our virtual screening of Mr. Soul. This presentation is brought to you by the Crandall Public Library and the Glens Falls Branch of the NAACP.
Mr. SOUL! - Indie Lens Pop Up
In 1968, producer Ellis Haizlip developed a new show aimed at Black audiences, one that used the familiar variety-show format to display and celebrate the breadth of Black culture. For five years, the public television series SOUL! highlighted Black literature, music, and politics, and often paired guests in unexpected juxtapositions that gave them an opportunity to shine in unique ways.
- Lee Braggs
First Vice President of the Glens Falls NAACP
