In partnership with The University of Akron's Rethinking Race series, The Nightlight is sponsoring two additional screenings of this groundbreaking film on Sunday, Feb 20 @ 6:30PM and Monday, Feb 21 @ 3:00PM. Tickets for these two shows are being offered at the student discount of $8.00 for all patrons.

Synopsis: During the same summer as Woodstock, over 300,000 people attended the Harlem Cultural Festival, celebrating African American music and culture, and promoting Black pride and unity. The footage from the festival sat in a basement, unseen for over 50 years, keeping this incredible event in America's history lost—until now.
