Call + Response is a soul-stirring documentary, released in 2007, detailing the slave trade that very much exists today. Music is a key component of the story, where artists such as Imogen Heap, Rocco Deluca, Matisyahu and Switchfoot use their talents in the film to bring further attention to this extremely important issue.
If anything, the film is worth watching to hear the remarkable Dr. Cornel West speak on the subject of slavery.
*Side-note: During the entire month of February 2010, Clore Chronicles will focus entirely on the history of African-Americans in Rock and Roll.
Here is a 10-minute teaser for Call + Response.
