Friday, February 26, 2021
Free, 2 week streaming of RIVER CITY DRUMBEAT, a powerful story of music, love, and legacies set in the American South.
Edward "Nardie" White devoted his life to leading the African-American drum corps he co-founded with Zambia Nkrumah in Louisville, KY 30 years ago. Together they inspired neighborhood youth to thrive by connecting them with the art and cultural traditions of their African ancestors. Now Albert Shumake, a former drumline member, must take up the mantle for the next generation. Meanwhile, student drummers Imani, Jailen, and Emily navigate adolescent life. RIVER CITY DRUMBEAT follows this creative community of mentors, parents, and youth making their way in a world where systemic forces raise obstacles to fulfilling their dreams. Running time 1h 35min.
