    I saw the film a couple of weeks ago at a local film festival. It was very good, although I wished there more classic performance clips. They spent quite a bit of time on the recent performance at the theatre featuring the work of Ta-Nehisi Coates.

    I am glad to hear that there is video for the celebration of The Apollo Theater. I'm looking forward to seeing this on Blu Ray, or on some streamingideo. I agree with you on wanting more of the past than the present (lol). It also made me wonder how many performances at the Apollo were ever captured on film or video. Just think of all the entertainers that stood on that stage at one time or another. Some of them were not even famous at that time.

    Yes... that's the question...


    Many things come to mind. How Knoel Scott puts it here for example at the top of this interview where he also covers more things, and materia in relation to what he is saying about this and what it means.
