    Summer Of Soul (Dis+)

    Documentary about the legendary 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival which celebrated African-American music and culture and promoted Black pride and unity.

    Amazing footage. Basically, the Black Woodstock. ?uestlove (drummer for The Roots) is behind this project, and he did a tremendous job. Apparently, this footage has been in a basement for 50 years, never seen. Besides the music, it delves into the social/political aspects of the time, really thought out, and the presentation is astounding. Highly recommend.

    I loved this! I have a weakness for documentaries and yes, the lost footage is simply astounding. Highly HIGHLY recommend.
