Connections: The documentary, "Summer of Soul"


The new documentary “Summer of Soul” is generating a lot of buzz. It’s part doc, part music, part historical record about the Harlem Cultural Festival in 1969. The footage was largely forgotten until now.

Our guests discuss the film, the music in the context of a time of unrest, and more. It’s screening at the Little Theatre through this weekend. Our guests:
