The Story Of Lover's Rock + Q&A


Director. Menelik Shabazz

During the late 1970s and 1980s, against a backdrop of racial tension and riots, a uniquely black British sound called Lovers Rock came to the fore. Often dubbed 'romantic reggae', the sounds provided an escape for a generation struggling to cope with what was happening on the streets. This documentary celebrates the pivotal but largely forgotten moment in black British culture with live performances and star interviews.
