Soul On Ice: Past, Present and Future Airs on Documentary Showcase

EntSun News/11025272
LOS ANGELES - EntSun -- Scientology Network's DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE, the weekly series providing a platform for Independent filmmakers to air films on important social, cultural and environmental issues, presents the documentary Soul On Ice: Past, Present and Future on May 17, 2024.

DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

Soul On Ice: Past, Present and Future tells the seldom-heard story of the first Black hockey players to step onto the ice and their struggle for acceptance that eventually broke the ice for today's professional Black players in the NHL.

Written and directed by Damon Kwame Mason, the documentary chronicles the discrimination faced by Black athletes from the earliest days of organized hockey leagues in North America, to the impact and influence of those who dared to pursue their dreams and break through the color barrier of the sport. Their legacies paved the way for today's Black NHL players and the youth programs that encourage children today of all races to participate and excel in hockey. The film is anchored around the countdown to the NHL draft and one outstanding young Black hockey player's dream of getting his shot at playing in the pro league.
