Information about Future x Sounds, the Harlem Cultural Festival and the 50th Anniversary Concert:
Taking place in the summer of 1969 during the same days as Woodstock, the original festival held a series of concerts in Mount Morris Park (now known as Marcus Garvey Park) and attracted more than 50,000 people to celebrate black pride, empowerment, music, and culture, and featured the likes of Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, BB King, Sly & The Family Stone, Hugh Masakela, The Fifth Dimension, Jesse Jackson, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Mahalia Jackson, and others. Curated by Neal Ludevig, a founder of the Harlem Arts Festival, and as a kickoff to the national Future x Sounds tour, conversations around art, activism and community will lead up to a 50th Year Anniversary concert, which will take place on August 17th.
