About the Film

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement in the black community and diaspora from 1967 to 1975. The film combines music, startling 16mm footage (lying undiscovered in the cellar of Swedish Television for 30 years) and contemporary audio interviews from leading African-American activists like Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver. These interviews are intermixed with reflections from contemporary African American thinkers, including Talib Kweli and Erykah Badu.
