Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of Soul to Soul tonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - On March 6, 1971, some of the greatest artists in popular music history traveled from the United States to Ghana, West Africa, to take part in a 14-hour musical celebration of the 14th anniversary of the independence of that country. Over 100,000 enthusiastic locals gathered for this unique cultural exchange between two continents. The award-winning film combines classic concert performances with scenes documenting the artists getting in touch with their roots as they return to the cultural motherland. With Wilson Pickett, Ike and Tina Turner, Santana, the Staple Singers, Willie Bobo, Les McCann, Eddie Harris, and the Voices of East Harlem.
MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact email@example.com
