Confusing

I think the intention was there but it was poor execution. The narrating left much to be desired. I thought listening to it would give me more information about freaknic but majority of it is about the history of Atlanta. I hoped for more. It’s not concise or thorough.

Interesting

Good cultural history/music documentary about the famous music festival and its ties to Atlanta and HBCUs. Have a feeling it’s going to get more interesting as it goes on and delves into more of the controversies and culture wars related to Freaknik.
