We here at CT stand in solidarity with the African American community to get justice for state crimes against black culture and black access to power. We support claims for reparations from Feds for diminishment of prosperity by the unethical termination of Soul! President Nixon conspired with his lieutenants to kill the show. But Wikipedia doesn’t tell you this, shame on them.
The CT media team saw the documentary Ellis Haizlip, Mr. Soul! The show was a black run entertainment variety show that was cutting, raw and totally authentic. It was produced by African Americans, for African Americans, but it was also a way for white society to experience the joy of being black. It is a beautiful documentary produced by Ellis’s daughter Melissa Haizlip.
We did a quick history on Wikipedia and learned the show “first aired on 9/12/68… The show lasted until March 7, 1973.” Wikipedia made no mention of the reason or cause for the show to be terminated. This omission of a conspiracy theorem / fact demonstrates a way knowledge of history is controlled.
In any case, the film ends with historic tape recordings from the Nixon White house Oval Office meeting of President Nixon and his lieutenants plotting to kill the show. Indeed, months later the contract was not renewed and the show ended. Another lynching. Another assassination except it was against an economic / cultural enterprise; it was another Tulsa without the fire and blood. But, at the heart of the demise of the show was a conspiracy by the president to shut down black culture and the radical messages the show put out.
