Wattstax!

If you haven't seen this amazing documentary please watch it. Produced by Richard Pryer, the piece documents the Stax Music Festival of 1972, celebrating the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the riots in Watts that followed after his assassination.


I mean...when was the last time you saw some shit like this? This peaceful? This poppin?! Probably the 70's. Damn you Reagan!
