See Soul Power at Liberty Hall tomorrow night

When Muhammad Ali met George Foreman for the Rumble in the Jungle in 1974, there was more than just the boxing match. Granted, the boxing match was epic and a stone classic that resulted in Ali regaining the world heavyweight championship. This was all documented in the film When We Were Kings.

If you enjoyed Leon Gast’s documentary, then you’ve a chance to see the follow-up docSoul Power (directed by Jeff Levy-Hinte from the same bunch of footage) tomorrow night at Lawrence’s Liberty Hall. The film features performances from soul and blues greats like James Brown, B.B. King, and Bill Withers alongside African music stars.

You can see the movie for $7, or pay $10 and get to attend the pre-show reception at 9:30 p.m., as well as the post-film party from 11:30 p.m. onward. The movie gets kicking at 10:00 p.m. sharp. A portion of the proceeds benefit Red Cross Haiti Relief.
