Netflix is gearing up to release a documentary that dives into the history of a music legend. The forthcoming film, entitled, The Black Godfather, will tackle the legendary career and legacy of music industry executive, Clarence Avant.
“There’s the power that needs the spotlight, but there’s also the power behind the scenes,” Barack Obama says in the trailer.
Diddy also noted Avant’s influence. “He became that mentor for us all, he became that godfather,” he said.
Clarence Avant is a music executive, entrepreneur, and film producer. He is usually referred to as the “Godfather of Black Music” and was known to defy widespread racism in the 1960s and influence all aspects of the music industry.
The Black Godfather documentary will hit Netflix on June 7. Watch the trailer in the video above.
