Rotten Tomatoes


Over the course of 6 weeks in the summer of 1969, the Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (Harlem, New York City). The footage was never seen or largely forgotten. This feature documentary 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. Enjoy never-before-seen footage of performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, among others.
