Towards the end of an otherwise interesting article about the evolution of song to performance in the Financial Times (via):

Black styles continued to dominate the dance floor in white neighbourhoods but they were [rarely?] heard on records. And rock simply ignored the evolving rhythmic trends. It is startling to contrast the blend of black and white at Freed’s 1950s rock ’n’ roll festivals with the dazzling whiteness of both audience and performers at Woodstock.

OK, I get the point, but let's be fair:

First day, first performer @ Woodstock : Richie Havens
Second: Swami Satchidananda
Fifth: Sweetwater
Ninth: Ravi Shankar
Second day, third Band: Santana
Eighth: Sly & The Family Stone
And the final act of the show: Jimi Hendrix. No need to link to anything about him.

Yeah, the article was talking about the differences between "black" (=dance) music and "white" music, and maybe Woodstock wasn't about dance music (though I don't know how you could say Sly wasn't...). But, there were plenty of non-white acts at Woodstock. It was more white than anything else, but it was hardly "dazzling" in its whiteness - at least from my vantage point.

I nitpick because I have nothing else to do.
