UMC will show documentaries about late hip hop greats Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G. and Jam Master Jay; concert performances from Earth Wind and Fire, Jimi Hendrix, and Unlocking the Truth; and stories about little-known black musicians such as the enslaved pianist Thomas Greene Bethune and “Queen of the Trumpet,” Valaida Snow.
UMC will also host a live Facebook interview with Leila Steinberg, the artist mentor and Tupac Shakur’s first manager (day and time were not given). A veteran music industry executive, Steinberg first met Tupac in 1988, when he enrolled in her writing workshop, The Microphone Sessions, which focused on spoken word, poetry, musicals, hip hop, pop and dance.
On June 9, UMC will stream American Beatboxer, a documentary about the first American Beatbox Championship. And on every Thursday through July 27, UMC will add another episode from season one of WE tv‘s Braxton Family Values.
