DIVA THIS TONIGHT! Soul Of A Nation Premieres Tonight On ABC… And Will Capture All Types Of Black Voices (Even Conservative Ones!)By Delaina Dixon | March 2, 2021 | Entertainment
ABC launches Soul of A Nation, a six-part series about the black American experience, tonight! We already know that experience comes in many shades — including ones that take different approaches to politics.
DivaGalsDaily asked the tough question of whether black conservative voices will have a platform to “speak their truth.” Executive producers Eric Johnson and Robe Imbriano, who are in real-time production, stated that the documentary will be as “expansive as we possibly can,” adding that the series is wide-open to exploring what black conservatism looks like in the community — as it doesn’t normally get spotlighted — along with new thought process like afro-futurism.
Marie Nelson, ABC New SVP of Integrated Content Strategy shared there’s a conversation with Nick Cannon, who has been accused of racism towards the Jewish community. “It’s a charged issue, but an important one,” she declared, explaining that conversations must be had to grow and learn from them.
And like Common says in the promo, there will be music. H.E.R. and new Golden Globe winner Andra Day are some of the upcoming featured talents. John Legend kicks things off tonight.
Watch Soul of A Nation, beginning Tuesday, March 2 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
