Production of a 90-minute television documentary and an interactive website about the first national television show on black culture, SOUL! (1968–1973) and a biography of its producer and host Ellis Haizlip.

This is a request to the NEH for a grant of $600,000 to support the production of MR. SOUL!, a 90-minute documentary about a crucial and unfairly forgotten milestone in American cultural history and the man primarily responsible for creating it. MR. SOUL! tells the story of SOUL!, a path-breaking television variety show devoted to the black experience in America, and of Ellis Haizlip, the producer whose broad vision and expansive cultural contacts helped to define it. MR. SOUL! is intended for a national PBS broadcast and a limited theatrical release.
