The Black Power Mixtape 1967 – 1975

This fascinating documentary tells the story of the Black Power movement in America during the late 1960s and early 1970s, from the perspective of filmmakers and journalists working for Swedish television at the time. Their footage, shot over a nine year period and now gleaned from the archives, is expertly crafted together to provide an outsiders view of one of the most tumultuous periods in American history. A remarkable account of a turbulent period, the film features rarely seen footage as well as music by The Roots, Michael Jackson, Erykah Badu and some of the most prominent voices of that epoch including Harry Belafonte, Stokely Carmichael, Eldridge Cleaver, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis, Talib Kweli, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale and Ahmir Questlove Thompson.
