Description

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. Forty hours of footage from the festival sat in a basement, unseen for over 50 years, keeping this incredible event in America's history lost—until now.

Featuring thrilling performances by Sly and the Family Stone, Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Night & the Pips and more, fans of good music will want to take note.
