Questlove's Summer of Soul Trailer Showcases the Legendary 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival
The first trailer for Questlove's documentary Summer of Soul premiered Sunday night during the 93rd Academy Awards broadcast, and is set to arrive in theaters July 2nd. The film will also be made available for streaming the same day on both Hulu and Disney+.

The documentary focuses on the much lesser-known Harlem Cultural Festival, which was dubbed the "Black Woodstock," and even took place the same year during the summer of 1969. Unlike the widely known Woodstock Music Festival that took place over the course of three days, the Harlem Cultural Festival lasted six whole weeks, and attracted the likes of Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, and Sly and the Family Stone to its stage. Despite the presence of world-famous artists and attendance numbers to rival that of Woodstock, the festival was seen as little more than an obscure pop culture phenomenon, something that the documentary looks to investigate.
