The legendary Stax Records label was the home of Memphis soul in the 60s/70s. The music of Stax artists accompanied the African-American civil rights movement. Today, Memphis is one of the poorest cities in the USA. Since 2000, Stax Music Academy has been a musical afternoon and holiday programme for African-American youth. By learning the greatest soul hits and talking to their teachers, the young people discover the rich heritage of African-American culture and develop perspectives for their own future. SOUL KIDS is a rousing history lesson with a lot of soul, awarded the Prix Sacem for Best Music Documentary in 2020.
