“Soul Power” Screening
July 27, 2013 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
Soul Power (2008) documentary by Jeffrey Levy-Hinte celebrates the legendary music festival that accompanied “The Rumble in the Jungle” between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. In 1974, the most celebrated American R&B acts of the time came together with the most renowned musical groups in Africa for a 12-hour, three-night long concert held in Kinshasa, Zaire. The dream-child of Hugh Masekela and Stewart Levine, this music festival became a reality when they convinced boxing promoter Don King to combine the event with “The Rumble in the Jungle,” the epic fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, previously chronicled in the Academy Award-winning documentary When We Were Kings.
