The documentary film, Wattstax, directed by Mel Stuart, follows the 1972 Watts Summer Festival, founded to commemorate the Watts Riots of 1965. The film features performances by Stax Records’ R&B, gospel, soul, and jazz greats, including Albert King, Kim Weston, the Staple Singers, Issac Hayes, and commentary by Richard Pryor. Wattstax not only captured a celebration of Black music but a movement as well (LA Times). The profound historic and cultural significance of Wattstax led to many accolades, including a golden globe nomination and induction into the National Film Registry. Grammy Award-nominated trumpeter, artist, producer, and composer, Theo Croker, will play a set in front of the epochal documentary. Based in LA, Croker has released five albums, including his most recent, Star People Nation.
