About the Film:

In 1972 at the Los Angeles Coliseum, director Mel Stuart captured the performances of the Watts Summer Festival. Organized by Stax Records, the festival was a gathering of musicians and entertainers from the Black community, brought together to remember the Watts Riots from seven years prior.

Key performances include those of comedian Richard Pryor, and singers Isaac Hayes and Luther Ingram. Stuart also presents shots of the Watts streets and community along with the festival footage.
