Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Ray Barreto, Mahalia Jackson, The 5th Dimension, The Staple Singers, & more icons of 60’s music. You might imagine a festival with that line-up would go down in history the way of Woodstock or Live Aid. But the footage of The Harlem Cultural Festival in Marcus Garvey Park, 1969 was buried and forgotten – until now.

In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, The Root’s Questlove presents a powerful and transporting documentary — with illuminating interviews and soul-stirring performances — around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture, and fashion.

Shining a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and standing testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present.

"The best music documentary I've ever seen." – Mark Kermode
