1969 must’ve been an amazing year for music, with Woodstock and the other festival that wasn’t talked about for long time till now thanks to Quest Love.
This is what transpired. Over the course of six weeks during the summer of 1969, thousands of people attend the Harlem Cultural Festival to celebrate Black history, culture, music and fashion. It features greats like B.B. King, The 5th Dimension, Stevie Wonder and many more you may or may not be aware of.
Among the times we are currently living in this documentary may be one of the most important ones of the year showcasing this important festival that I wish I could travel back in time and witness live because it sounds like it was a blast to see.
They also do a great job explaining about the times of 1969 and how stunningly similar it is to these times of 2020 and 2021, I appreciate Quest Love so much for bringing this to the attention of this generation who may not respect this music or may be introduced to it from this documentary.
It is a family friendly documentary as well, you’ll have a great watching and hearing the backstories of some of the songs involved in the festival.
Overall grade: 5/5 stars
