Questlove to Make Directorial Debut With 'Black Woodstock'.

The drummer will direct the feature documentary about the Harlem Cultural Festival in 1969.

The festival, which took place the same summer as Woodstock, drew over 300,000 people, but did not receive mainstream attention.

It’s incredible to look at 50 years of history that’s never been told, and I’m eager and humbled to tell that story, Questlove, via statement.

The festival featured legendary singers like Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and many more.

The film was comprised of over 40 hours of never-before-seen footage shot by TV pioneer Hal Tulchin
