Movie Night: Summer of Soul

Wednesday, September 21, 2022
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Petty Auditorium

Filmed over six weekends in the summer of 1969, this miraculous concert footage of the Harlem Cultural Festival was long thought lost.

Thankfully it got into the hands of Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, who deftly edited the raw footage into an Oscar-winning documentary complete with stunning performances by Stevie Wonder, Mahalia Jackson, Nina Simone, and Sly and the Family Stone, among others.

2021 -- 118 minutes -- Rated PG-13 -- Documentary

We will watch the film in the auditorium, followed by a brief discussion in the Radmacher Room.
