About Mr. SOUL!

From the late 1960s to the early ‘70s, the public television variety show “SOUL!” offered an unfiltered, uncompromising celebration of Black culture, music, literature, poetry, and politics. It gave a national platform for elevating a collection of voices when few opportunities existed. “SOUL!” featured a dazzling array of musical guests, including Patti LaBelle, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Al Green, the Delfonics and other extremely influential musicians. Their voices were uplifted and celebrated, never censored or interrupted.
