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.
