Alicia Keys is executive producing a documentary about six iconic Black female entertainers for PBS.
American Masters: How It Feels To Be Free will tell the story of Lena Horne, Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone, Diahann Carroll, Cicely Tyson and Pam Grier. The ladies story of challenging an entertainment industry deeply complicit in perpetuating racist stereotypes will be at the forefront.
The documentary will also feature conversations with Halle Berry, Lena Waithe, Meagan Good, LaTanya Richardson Jackson and Samuel L. Jackson.
American Masters: How It Feels To Be Free will air early next year according to reports.
I’ll definitely be watching!
