The Porter

BET | 10:30 pm

Set in the 1920s, this new historical drama follows the journeys of characters who cross borders and confront barriers in pursuits of their dreams as part of their fight for freedom, both on and off the railways that crisscrossed North America. Set largely in St. Antoine, Montreal — known at the time as the Harlem of the North — the story charts the birth of the world's first Black labor union. The large cast includes Mouna Traoré, Alfre Woodard, Ami Ameen, Stephanie Sy, Ronnie Rowe, Bruce Ramsay and Arnold Pinnock.
