Juneteenth / "Summer of Soul" screening


Time Out says

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is doing a special outdoor screening of Summer of Soul (...Or, When When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) directed by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. It follows the story of the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, featuring never-before-seen footage from the massive concert series that was (until now) virtually eliminated from the history books. It had its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and was met with rave reviews, taking home both the grand jury prize and the audience award. New York City will be able to experience Summer of Soul in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park just in time for Juneteenth.
