A free showing of the Academy Award-winning documentary Summer of Soul will take place on Friday, January 27, at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30) at the Panida Theater.
So, gather your families, friends, and neighbors and come on down to the Panida Theater for an incredible evening of eye-opening performances by such artists as Nina Simone, the Chamber Brothers, Sly & the Family Stone, Mahalia Jackson, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Stevie Wonder, Mavis Staples, and more. The performance by Nina Simone is worth the price of free admission! The film is rated PG-13.
This award-winning film has been called "The Black Woodstock." The film documents a series of summer concerts at the Harlem Cultural Festival in 1969 and celebrates black music, identity, and culture. The film sat in basement vaults for 50 years until Questlove edited over 40 hours of footage for this 2021 documentary.
Summer of Soul is brought to the Panida by 88.5 KRFY with a grant from the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force.
