Directed by Mel Stuart | 1973

With The Dramatics, The Staple Singers, Kim Weston, Jimmy Jones, Rance Allen Group

"A candid, colorful and deeply meaningful sociocultural time capsule."
—Washington Post

Stax brought out the stars for this massive day-long concert held after the 1972 Watts riots, including Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, and Rufus Thomas. Along with an awe-inspiring round of “I Am Somebody,” the live wire that is Richard Pryor elevates the film to greatness.
