The Wattstax Music Festival was held at the Los Angeles Coliseum on August 20, 1972. Often referred to as “the Afro-American answer to Woodstock”. Very good documentary.

    @AgZed: That’s Richard Pryor.

    My parents had pics of this concert. It was a huge deal after the Watts riots in 1965. Much of what had been destroyed in Watts had not been rebuilt. They were just starting the rebuilding of Watts when the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake hit and diverted resources away. Again, there was the threat of rioting. This concert was a way to placate that civil unrest.
