Welcome to the Image Quilt Cinema in Collaboration with the Camden County Library Screening of "Mr. Soul!!". Our screening will be followed by a live discussion over Zoom involving community scholars, activists, and you! Please register in advance at our website, imagequilt.com or with the Camden County Library.
Premiering in 1968, SOUL! was the first nationally broadcast all-Black variety show on public television, merging artists from the margins with post-Civil Rights Black radical thought. Mr. SOUL! delves into this critical moment in television history, as well as the man who guided it, highlighting a turning point in representation whose impact continues to resonate to this day.
