In 1969, the Harlem Cultural Festival drew 300,000 people over 6 weekends, yet the footage sat in storage for 50 years and few people have ever heard of it, until now.
Watch amazing musical performances, from blues to jazz to gospel and more, set in a political context, a time when revolution was in the air, the mass resistance to the war in Vietnam, the unprecedented urban rebellions, and the Black Liberation movement, with footage of the Young Lords and the Black Panther Party, and more.
