When we think back in time, about the dawning of music festivals, often Monterey Pop and Woodstock are the two that come to mind, but between it all was a series of fests in the summer of 1969, that have never received proper recognition, until now. Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson (… son of the late Lee Andrews, noted R&B / doo-wop vocalist), known as drummer for The Roots, is producer of ‘SUMMER OF SOUL,’ a new documentary which discusses black awareness, while sharing some incredible footage, and wealth of performers, including Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, The 5th Dimension, and many others. The documentary will be shown in select theaters, and is available via streaming on Hulu.
