More Than Rhythm Film Screening: “Soul to Soul” at Columbia Museum of Art

Thursday, February 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In March 1971, dozens of African American musicians traveled from New York City to Accra, Ghana, to perform at the Soul to Soul concert. Ultimately, the journey was about their personal roots, ancestral homeland, and history. Featuring Wilson Pickett, the Staple Singers, Ike & Tina Turner, and more, this documentary captures the story of Black American souls (re)connecting with Black West African souls through music.

This film viewing is free with Columbia Museum of Art membership or paid museum admission. Part of More Than Rhythm’s month-long Celebration of Soul.
