Filmmaker Stanley Nelson captures the history of African-American a cappella group Sweet Honey In The Rock® and follows their 30th anniversary concert tour. The film includes footage from concerts, rehearsals, the tour bus and the daily life of the members: Carol Maillard seeing her son off to his high school prom, Nitanju Bolade Casel singing to her son in the morning, Ysaye Maria Barnwell leading a community singing workshop. After Bernice Johnson Reagon announces her retirement, the other members of Sweet Honey hold auditions for a new member. The movie includes the encore from their final performance with Bernice Reagon. 


Following this screening there will be a Q&A with Carol Maillard and Louise Robinson of SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK®
