The program is hosted and executive produced by NBA legend, best-selling author, and activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and highlights/celebrates African Americans throughout US history who helped to shape this nation, but who have been long overlooked. Previous episodes have focused on heroes and heroines of the Revolutionary War and Civil War; this season we will be exploring the stories of the Buffalo Soldiers (1866-1953).

THE BEGINNING

 

“Black Patriots: Heroes of the Revolution” is produced for HISTORY by the Six West MediaTM group. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Deborah Morales serve as executive producers for Iconomy Multi-Media & Entertainment. Steve Ascher, Kristy Sabat, Jessica Conway and Stephen Mintz are executive producers for the Six West MediaTM group. Jennifer Wagman is executive producer for HISTORY.

 

Anthony Powell and I spent the day on the set of Black Patriots, delivering his perspective on key characters, his personal connection, and dispelling some myths about the Buffalo Soldier timeline.  We fled the sed on our way to the private screening of our project Homage To Warriors Pat and Present.
