**TRAILER PREMIERE**

THE BLACK GODFATHER

A Netflix Documentary

Releasing Globally on Netflix and in Select Theaters on June 7, 2019

Featuring: Clarence Avant

Directed by: Academy Award(R) nominee Reginald Hudlin

Produced by: Nicole Avant, Byron Phillips, Nelson George, Caitrin Rogers

Featuring interviews with Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Diane Warren, Lionel Richie, Suzanne de Passe, David Geffen, Jerry Moss, Sir Lucian Grainge, Cicely Tyson, and Jamie Foxx, among others

Synopsis:

For decades, the world's most high profile entertainers, athletes and politicians have turned to a single man for advice during the most pivotal moments in their lives and careers, including Grammy Award(R) winners, Hall of Famers, a Heavyweight Champion of the World and two U.S. Presidents. That man is Clarence Avant.

The Black Godfather charts the exceptional and unlikely rise of Avant, a music executive whose trailblazing behind-the-scenes accomplishments impacted the legacies of icons such as as Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, and Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Driven by a sense of equality, loyalty, and justice, Avant left the Jim Crow south behind to emerge as a powerhouse negotiator at a time when deep-seated racism penetrated every corner of America. Avant defied notions of what a black executive could do, redefining the industry for entertainers and executives of color and leaving a legacy of altruism for others to emulate.

Directed by Academy Award(R) nominee Reginald Hudlin and featuring interviews with Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, Bill Withers, Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Lionel Richie, Suzanne de Passe, David Geffen, Jerry Moss, Cicely Tyson, and Jamie Foxx, among others, The Black Godfather pulls the curtain back on the maestro himself, projecting a spotlight on the man who's spent his entire career ensuring that it shined on others.
