Film: RESPECT YOURSELF: THE STAX RECORDS STORY

RESPECT YOURSELF: THE STAX RECORDS STORY

RESPECT YOURSELF: THE STAX RECORDS STORY chronicles the birth of Stax Records, soul music, and the “Memphis sound.” During a time when the United States was segregated and the struggle to end racial discrimination and extend civil rights to African Americans was raging, Stax was racially integrated and eventually became one of the most successful black-owned companies in the nation. Through classic performances and interviews with Stax artists, founder Jim Stewart, and many others associated with the record company, the film tells the story of America’s preeminent soul label.
