It is beginning to look like we may be seeing a Renaissance in Black Americans on Television. Cedric The Entertainer and Neicy Nash are now joining that Renaissance, with a new television series on the TV Land Network. “Soul Man” is centered around Cedric, who plays a former R&B Star, and new Preacher. He leaves the high life on the Las Vegas strip to lead a small congregation in St. Louis. The comedic fodder for the show is supplied by the difficulty his family faces in adjusting to a more humble lifestyle. The show debuts on June 20. With relatively few established shows with large african american casts, and hollywood’s recent willingness to give them a try-it’s important to support new shows (especially efforts that present positive presentations).
