Indie Lens Pop-Up: ‘Mr. Soul!’
Ends at 11:59 p.m. Friday
Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free screening of “Mr. Soul!” Before Oprah and Arsenio, there was Mr. Soul, who captured a critical moment in culture. His impact continues to resonate today. From 1968 into 1973, the PBS variety show “Soul!” guided by 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 TV, shifting the gaze from inner-city poverty and violence to the vibrancy of the Black arts movement.
