Soundtrack for a Revolution

This month’s Meaningful Movie is Soundtrack for a Revolution, the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music – the freedom songs sang on picket lines, in mass meetings and in jail cells as people fought for justice and equality. It features new performances by top artists, archival footage and interviews with civil rights foot soldiers and leaders.

The movie is tonight, Wednesday, at Old Liberty Theater, 115 North Main Avenue. Lobby opens for refreshments for sale at 6:30, and the film is at 7 pm. It’s free, but donations are very welcome. The showing and discussion in celebration of Black History Month are sponsored in part by the NAACP Vancouver Branch 1139 and the generosity of Rheta and Howard Rubenstein. 

David Watson will speak after the film about his life as the “Doctor of Bebop“. He is an amazing man and draws his inspiration from the great Ella Fitzgerald. In lieu of our usual previews at 6:50 pm, we will be showing a short documentary about his life before the main movie.
As usual there will be a moderated community discussion after the movie.
