DESCRIPTION:
(from EPIX's press release, October 2020) Premium television network EPIX(R) announced today that four-part docuseries By Whatever Means Necessary: The Times of Godfather of Harlem will premiere on November 8, 2020 at 10 PM ET/PT. Inspired by the music and subjects featured in the EPIX original series Godfather of Harlem, this documentary series brings alive the dramatic true story of Harlem and its music during the 1960's, and connects that history to our present moment. Featuring interviews with the stars of Godfather of Harlem, including Academy Award(R)-winner Forest Whitaker, Giancarlo Esposito and Ilfenesh Hadera and musicians Gladys Knight, Martha Reeves, Herbie Hancock, Nile Rogers, A$AP Ferg, Chika, Joe Bataan and Freddie Stone, this series will take audiences on a musical journey that brings to life the excitement of 1960's Harlem, and introduces the artists who dared to use their voices, instruments and lyrics to take a stand against oppression. Other notables in the series include activist Al Sharpton, former U.S. Representative Charles Rangel and poet Sonia Sanchez. Through archival footage and evocative imagery, audiences will see beyond the black and white historical images into the multicolored souls of musicians unafraid to use music as a weapon against change.
