Join Frameline and Bayview Opera House at this special community screening that celebrates the importance of uncovering our buried cultural histories, of setting the record straight, and of the enduring power of community.

Summer of Soul is a stunning unearthed treasure destined to become a pillar of American music and African American history. In his striking debut as a filmmaker, the legendary musician Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents this transporting documentary—part concert film, part historical record—about an epic event that radiated the wholesale reevaluation of Black history, culture, fashion, and music. This rich tapestry deftly incorporates an unforgettable musical revue that includes many rare gems, such as a Stevie Wonder drum solo and a duet between Mahalia Jackson and Mavis Staples. Summer of Soul shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music.
