Trivia

The music credits list Francis Scott Key as the author of "The Star Spangled Banner," which Jimi Hendrix played at the end of this Georgia concert while fireworks went off in the distance. However, Key only wrote the lyrics, while Hendrix played only the melody, which was written by an Englishman, John Stafford Smith. See more »

A good addition to music documentaries of the era
27 March 2019 | by TigerHeronSee all my reviews

Yes, a couple of the interviews could have been pruned. I'm sure a lot of viewers would probably want to skip to the second half of the movie that is just music. But the townspeople speaking about the event, and the archival footage, show imagery of the 60s era that many young people today probably know nothing about. It also shows the two sides of the South, both the racism of the government and the goodwill of ordinary people. The most amazing thing is that almost half a million people gathered with no law enforcement to speak of and no one got hurt. This would be unheard of today.
