Kevin Hart to Star in History Channel Special ‘The Black Man’s Guide to History’

Dan Harmon isn’t the only comedian highlighting important historical figures for History. The network has ordered a special from Kevin Hart and Comedy Dynamics called Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man’s Guide to History. Here’s more on the special from the press release:

The show begins as Hart finds his daughter upset after watching the film 12 Years A Slave believing that black history appears to only be about slavery and oppression. This prompts Hart to begin educating her through scripted re-enactments about fascinating historical figures that people may not have heard about before such as: Matthew Henson, the first person to go to the North Pole, but did not receive the credit; Robert Smalls, a former slave who led a revolt on a Confederate warship and pretended to be the captain to evade capture; Mae Jemison, the first black female astronaut and Henry “Box” Brown, a slave who courageously mailed himself to a free state in a box.

The special premieres on History sometime later this year.
