Documentary Preview: “The Revolution will not be televised” until now — “Summer of Soul”

This July release from Searchlight and Hulu is the Questlove-produced edit of footage gathered at the “Soul Woodstock,” the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival.

Sly and Nina Simone, Gil Scott-Heron and the Staples, B.B. King and Moms Mabley — an epic lineup filmed and never edited into a movie.

Now we get to see it. Looks glorious. July 2.
