Over at That Shelf, I reviewed wonderful documentary Summer of Soul (or…, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised). The directorial debut of Ahmir “Questlove” Thomson shines a light on the Harlem Cultural Festival, an epic six-week concert with a who’s who of artists that got overshadowed by Woodstock in the halls of history. You can read my full thoughts on the film via the link below:

I’m not reading the review just yet as I still want to see it – but it’s so weird that all the screenings I’ve been invited to for it, are in like 10 days! Of course they are in person with Questlove doing a Q & A – but still – strange. Will get back to reading it when I’ve watched!
