Tubi Celebrates Black History Month With ‘Howard High,’ ‘Pass the Mic’ & More
This February, Tubi will celebrate Black History Month with over a thousand Black film and TV titles available to stream for free, along with the new Tubi original movie Howard High and the documentary Pass the Mic.
“As home to the largest free collection of Black Cinema, Tubi is dedicated to empowering and elevating Black voices and stories year-round,” said Tubi’s Chief Content Officer, Adam Lewinson. “We’re honored to celebrate Black History Month with a super-charged offering of premium programming, including two exciting new Tubi Originals — the high-energy musical drama Howard High and the inspiring documentary Pass the Mic.”
Based on the 2020 miniseries of the same name, Howard High follows a high school musical group whose performing arts program is at risk of being cut. To save it, they must win a nationally televised competition against a rival school, all while dealing with their own battles. Directed by Christopher B. Stokes, the movie premieres on February 4.
