If your spirit is in need of some uplift, the documentary Amandla will do the trick.

The film is about how the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa was propelled and buoyed by song. The stories told within by folks like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba, among many others, are horrifying but the path toward freedom and the power in the songs that were (and still are) sung by the people marching forward toward a free South Africa are beyond moving. Proof that music is a most powerful medium, one that can unite, uplift and empower its listeners.
