Electric Purgatory: The Fate of the Black Rocker
The lack of African-Americans in the world of rock-and-roll is explored in this documentary from director Raymond Gayle. Using interviews with bands such as Living Colour and Fishbone, the film attempts to figure out whether labels, musicians or fans are to blame for rock-music being a genre dominated by whites. Also featuring archival footage Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Jimi Hendrix. Electric Purgatory: The Fate of the Black Rocker premiered at the San Francisco Black Film Festival. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
