‘Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man’s Guide to History’ to air on the History channel in 2017.

In a History channel special event, Kevin Hart teaches his young daughter about lesser known moments in black history using Hart’s signature brand of storytelling.


According to a recent report by Variety, Kevin Hart is executive producing and starring in his own two-hour black history special on the History channel entitled ‘Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man’s Guide to History’.

Per the announcement made at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, the two-hour History special begins with the actor and comedian finding his daughter distraught after watching the film “12 Years a Slave,” believing that black history seemingly only being about slavery and oppression. From this point Hart will employ his unique and comedic brand of storytelling to express lesser known black history moments through scripted reenactments about historical figures people may not have heard about.

Following suit with the recent hit black history focused feature film “Hidden Figures”, Hart’s Special will bring more lesser known black history triumphs to the mainstream. With a highly active and career defining 2015 & 2016 under his belt, with films such as “The Wedding Ringer,” “Get Hard,” “Ride Along 2,” “Central Intelligence,” and “The Secret Life of Pets,” Hart continues to stay busy through 2017 reuniting with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the “Jumanji” reboot and Ice Cube for trilogy topper “Ride Along 3.” Kevin Hart is without dispute one of the most active go-to comedic leads in Hollywood at the moment and, judging by his heavy 2017 movie slate, audiences will likely be seeing much more of him across television of film for years to come.

“Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man’s Guide to History” is set to air in 2017 on History.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
