Trailer / Teaser

STAX: Soulsville, U.S.A.

by Jamila Wignot

“STAX: Soulsville, U.S.A.” tells the story of an underdog, interracial record label that ushered in the groundbreaking music of Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Booker T. & the M.G.’s, The Staple Singers, Sam & Dave and many others. Defying the notion that Black artists needed to be “made marketable,” the Memphis-based label went from ultimate outsider to one of the record industry’s most influential producers of soul music. It’s a quintessentially American story of an audacious group of individuals who dared to make their own music on their own terms creating an institution that has continued to help define our culture long after the label itself has gone.
