Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story Film Screening and Panel Discussion
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
From Isaac Hayes to The Staple Singers, The Stax Records Story highlights some of its biggest artists from the Memphis-based record label. This fascinating documentary provides a look into the history of the Stax studio while also introducing audiences to the mix of soul, blues, R&B, and funk that comprised the “Memphis sound” of the ’60s and ’70s. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, The Stax Records Story is an amalgamation of Memphis history, music history, and Black history. This film was directed by Robert Gordan and Morgan Neville (2007). This film screening is part of the Cinema and the Changing American South series, in conjunction with Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South. There will be a panel discussion following the film. Masks required and limited capacity. Reserve your seat by e-mail to email@example.com.
