ABC hopes to keep the conversation about Black History Month going in March with the premiere of the six-episode Soul of a Nation, which the network is billing as the first broadcast network newsmagazine to highlight Black life in this way. Interview subjects include Jemele Hill and Marsai Martin. "We’re excited to expand enterprising Black storytelling and the celebration of Black culture beyond the month of February," co-executive producer Eric Johnson said in a statement. "Viewers of all backgrounds, regardless of race, will be moved, educated and inspired by the broad range of stories and topics shared on this show."
