Summary:
Throughout the '60s the Impressions helped provide a soundtrack for the civil rights movement with such classic songs as 'People Get Ready', 'Meeting Over Yonder', 'Choice of Colors' and 'We're a Winner.' Later as a solo artist Curtis further defined an era with his '70s masterpiece, Superfly. This two-hour documentary tells their incredible story through interviews with Impressions Fred Cash and Sam Gooden, Curtis' wife Altheida Mayfield, producer/arranger Johnny Pate, Carlos Santana, Chuck D, civil rights leader Ambassador Andrew Young, and archival interviews with Curtis Mayfield, as well as 20 complete performances filmed between 1965 and 1973. This film celebrates the craft and the conscience of one of the 20th century's great souls.
