Dive Deeper: Black Woodstock 50th Anniversary Celebration

7:30 - 9:00pkm

The Harlem Cultural Festival of 1969 is the most popular music festival you may have never heard of.

Performers including Nina Simone, The 5th Dimension, B.B. King, Sly and the Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Mahalia Jackson and more came together in celebration of Black music, culture and pride. The free concerts, six in total, took place in Marcus Garvey Park with more than 100,000 people attending. The 50th anniversary concert, curated by Neal Ludevig, and produced by Summerstage NYC and Future x Sounds will take place on August 17.

As part of the 50th anniversary of this epic cultural experience, Harlem Stage brings together notable social activist and MC Talib Kweli, acclaimed musician Igmar Thomas (Leader of the Revive Big Band, Lauryn Hill), Grammy Award Winning Trumpeter and Vocalist Keyon Harrold (Common, Jay-Z), legendary percussionist Juma Sultan (Jimi Hendrix’s former percussionist), Toni Blackman (actress, writer, and hip-hop ambassador to the U.S. State Department) and others for a very unique dialogue about art and activism. 

Join Harlem Stage as these artists share how they began their journeys, how they measure success, what they are hoping for most with their work, and their impact in the worlds of art, music, social justice, and activism.https://www.harlemstage.org/events-list/black-woodstock
