Drake, LeBron James Maverick Carter, and Adel “Future” Nur are set to executively produce a documentary about the history of Black hockey players. The doc will be directed by Oscar nominee Hubert Davis. This particular subject has not been explored in the mainstream media until now. The documentary titled ‘Black Ice’ will premiere in Canada.

‘Black Ice’ will focus on racism in hockey faced by Black players. It is an untold story that needs to be heard. The historical mistreatment of Black hockey players in Canada will be explored through putting a lens on the early pioneers of the Colored Hockey League. The documentary will also include the current state of hockey when it comes to diversity.

“Despite the hardships and struggles, this story is about resilience and how society views itself today while offering a path forward to a more equitable and inclusive future,” stated by the production company  behind the documentary, Uninterrupted Canada chief content officer Vinay Virmani. “I think it is more important than ever before for all generations, particularly young people of colour, to understand and see the diverse faces who have contributed and shaped one the essential fabrics of our country,” added director Davis.

Bell Media will release ‘Black Ice’ on Canada’s TSN, Crave, and CTV platforms. A distribution deal for the United States is currently in the negotiation process.
