American Masters Roberta Flack

Her music has topped Billboard charts with No. 1 singles like “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” and this special documents her rise to stardom and her experience as a Black woman both in and out of the studio. Along with home movies, archival photos and unreleased music, the documentary includes interviews with Flack herself, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Clint Eastwood, Yoko Ono and Angela Davis.

I could never stand her.

this: “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” - says it all, as far as I'm concerned.

It’s a treat to revisit her story, her activism and her voice, an instrument whose power lay in its sinuous mastery of range, tone and emotion.

Flack’s extraordinary career comes through with great vigor in this documentary. The documentary was filmed before Flack was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Seeing this documentary is a wonderful way to enjoy the fullness of Robert Flack.
