Morgan Freeman’s Revelations Working on History in Color


Relevé Entertainment, an All3Media America company, is collaborating with Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary’s Revelations Entertainment to develop and produce the docuseries History in Color.

The seven-part series explores the contributions of African American trailblazers, disruptors and unknown heroes who rejected the status quo and changed the course of modern history.

Each episode is directed by a leading African American icon and is their personal exploration of the lives of often-unknown people who blazed the trail for their career. Each episode will focus on a distinct discipline: entertainment, business, science, armed forces, education, sports and faith.
Freeman will direct the premiere episode.
Freeman and McCreary said: “We’ve been producing together for almost 25 years and have hundreds of fascinating subjects for this ongoing series. And it’s well past time that we reveal these trailblazers’ stories to a broader audience!”
Dr. Holly Carter, co-founder of Relevé, commented: “I’m really proud to bring this project to life. This pivotal time in history affords us a unique opportunity to give a platform to African American contributions that have long been overlooked.”
