Tough and wonderful subject matter done well. Wish it were a series!

One of the most important questions about history is who gets to tell it. Kevin Hart's Guide to Black History sets out to tell inspirational stories of Black Americans, as a counterpoint to the stories of violence and oppression that tend to get the most focus. Hart tries to keep his version of history light and accessible, with corny humor and fun guests throughout. Of course, the focus on entertainment means that the actual history doesn't get as deep or rich as it otherwise might.
