Maxwell Street Blues is a 2001 documentary that chronicles the since failed struggle to save Chicago's Maxwell Street community, the birthplace of the electric blues. The film contains rare archival footage of Maxwell Street in the 1940s, and documents some of the last blues performances in this historic community.

This is another great film from Archive.org. http://archive.org/details/Maxwell_St...
