During the question-and-answer session after filmmaker Damon Kwame Mason's documentary "Soul on Ice: Past, Present and Future" premiered at the Gasparilla International Film Festival on Tuesday, March 7 2017 he said, "This is not just black history or hockey history or sports history. This is our history."
Mason's 84-minute film takes a journey through the history of black athletes and their contributions in hockey and follows the season of forward prospect Jaden Lindo, who prepares for the 2014 NHL Draft playing for Owen Sound of the Ontario Hockey League.
"Soul on Ice" spotlights the earliest contributors of black athletes in hockey from the Coloured Hockey League of the Maritimes that was founded in 1895. The league, which predates the Negro baseball leagues by nearly 30 years, had more than 400 players from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.
