Doc'n Roll: How They Got Over + Q&A

In the decades following the Second World War, the broad reach of radio and record sales helped black gospel quartets spread throughout African-American communities across the US. Using archival performance clips and interviews with pioneers of the genre, How They Got Over tells the story not only of how these artists reached audiences, but went through their daily lives in a segregated society...and along the way paved the road to rock’n’roll from doo-wop and from R&B to soul and hip-hop. The screening will include a performance from the Phoenix Choir
