In the wake of the Black Power movement, Amiri Baraka along with other poets, writers, dramatists, and musicians, formed The Black Arts Movement (BAM). Those artists and many entertainers found their culture and politics featured prominently on Soul!, the groundbreaking one-hour series produced by Ellis Haizlip for PBS stations (1968-73) in the New York area. Leading cultural critic and musician Greg Tate will examine the relationship between Soul! and the Black Arts Movement–with renowned poets Nikki Giovanni, Askia M. Touré, and Gayle Wald, author of It’s Been Beautiful: Soul! and Black Power Television.Buy tickets/get more info now
