Hillary D. Wilson Partners with the History Channel
Many people don’t know that African Americans played an integral role in the fight for our country’s independence. Anchored by sit down interviews with NBA legend, best-selling author and esteemed activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as well as numerous esteemed historians and supported with archival material, “Black Patriots: Heroes of the Revolution” will cover both sides of the fight, highlighting black heroes of the American Revolution who stood up against British rule to help establish the United States of America, and, conversely, black loyalists who fought for the Crown—and the promise of freedom. The documentary will also present Abdul-Jabbar’s personal journey, revealing his own unique discovery of important historical figures like Crispus Attucks and others and how they helped change the perception of his own heritage.
Hillary D. Wilson, repped by Inkyverse, was invited to do illustrations for this show which has been nominated for an Emmy award for best narration.
