We’re always excited to celebrate Black art and creativity, and this month Hulu is expanding their Black Stories hub with a new anthology documentary series that highlights incredible Black artists and is hosted by none other than Craig Robinson. Each episode will feature three Black creatives from multiple disciplines. Each of them are pushing boundaries in their field and blazing the trail for the new generation! You can check out the trailer for the new series below!
As the trailer teases, each episode of Your Attention Please will center on Black creatives who are pushing their forms and art forward. The first entry into the new series centers on three awesome creators you should already know. First, tech entrepreneur Iddris Sandu who established the first smart retail store experience alongside the late Nipsey Hustle; dancer and movement artist Jon Boogz and M.A.I. movement; and New York Times #1 Bestselling author of the spectacular Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi. In the words of Hulu these artists “give us a glimpse into their personal journeys – in tech, dance, and literature.”
