Summer of Soul is part music film and part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just 100 miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was never seen and largely forgotten – until now. Summer of Soul shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present. The feature includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly and the Family Stone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension, and more.

Stay afterward to discuss the film with Bryan Greene who served as Consulting Producer on "Summer of Soul.” Bryan's 2017 article on the 1969 Harlem Music Festival renewed public interest in the festival that is the subject of the film. Bryan is a contributing writer to Smithsonian Magazine, where he writes on American history, civil rights, and music. Bryan is a housing-policy expert, who served in the federal government for 30 years.
