Synopsis: The show begins with Hart’s daughter upset after watching the film “12 Years A Slave,” believing that black history is solely about slavery and oppression and prompting Hart to educate her through scripted re-enactments about fascinating historical figures that people may not have heard about before. These figures include: 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.

Note: Kevin Hart is executive producer on this project. Also known as “Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man’s Guide to History”. Was suppose to be released in 2017. Listed on IMDB as in Post Production but no release date on there or official site.
No update on this project for a year so I’m moving it to “Lost”.
