ABC News will expand its recent Soul of a Nation series with two primetime specials designed to commemorate the first anniversary of George Floyd’s death and Juneteenth.
The network has committed to six episodes of Soul of a Nation that will air on consecutive Tuesday nights. No premiere date or time slot has been announced. Each episode will be centered on a theme, such as spirituality, activism in sports and the racial reckoning triggered by George Floyd’s death. Journalist Jemele Hill and actor Marsai Martin of Black-ish are among the guest hosts. Above from left, Carmelo Anthony, Nick Cannon and David Alan Grier are among those who will be featured.
