Recently remade with Whitney Houston, this 1976 feature film with the same name is a rags-to-riches story of three teenage singers in Harlem who form a girl group in the late 1950s. Starring Irene Cara, Lonette McKee, and Philip Michael Thomas, and featuring original music by Curtis Mayfield, the low-budget original has reached cult classic status since its successful mid-1970s release.

MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact info@press-street.com.
