Episode notes

Join us this week as we chat about the Oscar and BAFTA winning documentary Summer of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) (2021) directed by Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson.

Premise: During the same summer as Woodstock, a different music festival took place 100 miles away. More than 300,000 people attended the summer concert series known as the Harlem Cultural Festival. It was filmed, but after that summer, the footage sat in a basement for 50 years. Only now has that footage been shown to the world.

Summer of Soul (2021) is available to watch on Disney +.
