In honor of Black History Month, join author and music historian Richie Unterberger as he presents rare soul music clips from the 1960’s and early 1970’s. Included is footage of performers such as Stevie Wonder, John Lee Hooker, Bill Withers, Wilson Pickett, the Jackson Five, the Staple Singers, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, the Bar-Kays, Ray Charles, the Temptations, and Aretha Franklin.(Please note: This is not a repeat of “Golden Age of Soul”. It is Vol. 2, featuring entirely different clips)
