FOF #2985 – Erthe St. James on the Summer of Soul

The summer of 1969 was an extraordinary time- the Stonewall riots ignited the modern LGBTQ rights movement, astronauts landed on the moon, Woodstock shaped the anti-war movement and for Black folks in Harlem, it was the Summer of Soul.

Today musician Erthe St. James, who is highly influenced by Nina Simone and the music of this era joins us to look at the impact these artists from Summer of Soul have had on music and Civil Rights.

Listen as we chat with Erthe St. James about the wonderful music featured in the documentary and what the world would be like if the footage of the festival was widely seen at the time?
