Questlove's 'Black Woodstock' Doc: Summer Of Soul

Questlove's 'Black Woodstock' Doc: Summer Of Soul

Yes, Black Woodstock. This documentary was outstanding in so many ways. Also sad that this footage sat unknown for 50 years! If you are looking for a fantastic evening with some good tunes...look now further. The Kings & Queens were all there.... Queen Nina Simone, King Stevie Wonder, Kings & Queens of Sly and the Family Stone, Queen Gladys Knight and her King Pips, King BB King, Queen Mahalia Jackson, the Kings and Queens of the Fifth Dimension. Such a fantastic watch. Director Questlove did a fantastic job of uncovering the footage and then to slice and dice it to this current soul lifting stage. The most incredible North American, South American and African beats. 

Here's the trailer. You will wish you had known about this earlier. 

 

Kings and Queens, watch this now! 

Check out our African Queen below. Zulu Queen Nandi is another incredible story. You'll find some beautiful artwork on T-shirts, Tea Towels, Scarves and Pillow Covers. It is getting close to gift giving season. 

Have a Queenspirational funky day!
