Summer of Soul (…or when the revolution could not be televised) is Questlove’s directorial debut about the Harlem Cultural Festival in 1969 which celebrated Black music, culture, and pride. The festival took place over the course of six weeks in Harlem, New York during the same time as Woodstock. But instead of receiving the same amount of attention, the footage of the festival was stored in a basement and has never been seen…until now.
The feature length documentary is part music concert, part historical accounts, and part interviews with performers and attendees. It showcases performances by some of the biggest acts of the time such as Stevie Wonder, Galdys Knight, B.B. King, and Sly and the Family Stone.
It’s a beautiful look into a complicated time in history during the heart of the Civil Rights Movement. The performances were amazing and the fact that the public has never had access to them is such a misfortune. The film did a wonderful job of portraying the struggles of Black people during that time while keeping the focus on the beauty of the music and culture.
We thought the documentary was wonderful and we are so honored to have seen it in the theater. Make sure to check it out in theaters or on Hulu! It was the perfect way to wrap up a fantastic evening of celebrating soulfully at Disney Springs.
