About this Event

WHRO Emerging Leaders Board presents Indie Lens Pop Up

MR. SOUL

Before Oprah, before Arsenio, there was Ellis Haizlip—Mr. SOUL! On the heels of the civil rights movement, the public television variety show SOUL!, offered an unfiltered, uncompromising celebration of Black literature, poetry, music, and politics—voices that had few other options for national television exposure.. The film celebrates the groundbreaking PBS series against the backdrop of a swiftly changing political and social landscape, while profiling Haizlip, the charismatic man behind one of the most culturally significant and successful TV shows in U.S. history.

With participants’ recollections and archival clips, Mr. SOUL! captures a critical moment in culture whose impact continues to resonate.
