Documentary with a selection from a non-stop 7-hour musical event at Watts, the Los Angeles Coliseum, August 20, 1972. It’s a sort of Woodstock event but with black artists, namely the groups Dramatics, Staple Singers, Rance Allen Group, Emotions, Bar Kays, Mel & Tim.

Best concert film ever made (better than The Last Waltz; you fill in the blank), and quite possibly, one of the most illuminating films about being black in America. This movie also features Richard Pryor at his best. This is a great movie.
