Airs Friday, February 27, at 10 p.m. A Man Like Curtis is a two hour tribute to Curtis Mayfield, hosted by Lenny Kravitz, for whom Curtis was a major musical influence.  With commentary from many fellow artists and family members, we learn how, despite his accomplishments as a prodigious writer and arranger of his generation, Mayfield remained a humble soul for the entirety of his life.
