Check out a preview below for this week’s episode from ABC and “Soul of a Nation” on Twitter.
As the country grapples with the Derek Chauvin trial, an all-new episode of the primetime newsmagazine “Soul of a Nation” delves into America’s New Reconstruction – can the Black community turn pain into promise, prosperity and power? Actor Michael Kenneth Williams explores the hope and resilience of the Black community throughout history as the guest host. Williams, ABC News’ Linsey Davis, Sunny Hostin, Steve Osunsami, Rachel Scott and Pierre Thomas lead the hour which features an interview with and performance by singer Andra Day.
The episode looks back at the Tulsa Race Massacre nearly 100 years later, features the unseen Black men who have been sentenced to death row and examines the racial reckoning in present-day America which some call “the third reconstruction.”
The April 6 episode of “Soul of a Nation” airs the same day as the first episode of ABC Audio’s new accompanying podcast “Soul of a Nation: Tulsa’s Buried Truth,” written and hosted by Osunsami, debuts.
“Soul of a Nation” is executive produced by Eric Johnson and Robe Imbriano; Chantre Camack serves as executive editorial producer; James Adolphus is series director, and Marie Nelson is the series creator and senior vice president of Integrated Content Strategy at ABC News.
