The power of song to communicate, motivate, console, unite and, ultimately, beget change: that ideal, gloriously realized, lies at the heart of director Lee Hirsch’s inspiring documentary feature film Amandla! A Revolution in Four-¬Part Harmony. The film tells the story of black South African freedom music and reveals the central role it played in the long battle against apartheid. Amandla!’s focus is on the struggle’s spiritual dimension, as articulated and embodied in song. Amandla! A Revolution in Four-¬Part Harmony will be screened at El Barrio Firehouse Community Media Center on
Friday, April 5 from 6:30 to 8:30pm. It's free!
