RBG | "The Black Power MixTape" Excerpts from the Acclaimed Swedish Documentary

FULL FILM DESCRIPTION
http://blackpowermixtape.com/
In the late ’60s, after the assassination of both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, the civil rights movement in America gave way to a more militant breed of activists who were demanding greater self-determination for the African-American community and the right to defend themselves against a system they felt was stacked against them. A number of journalists for Swedish television were fascinated with the rise of the Black Panther Party and the larger Black Power movement, and on several occasions sent film crews to the United State to interview major figures in the African-American militant community. Filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson has used some of this archival footage as the basis for the documentary The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975, which includes vintage interviews with Angela Davis, Eldridge Cleaver, Huey P. Newton, Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Louis Farrakhan, and other key figures in the Black Power movement. The newsreels are accompanied by recent interviews with artists, activists, and cultural historians who discuss this volatile period in American history, including Harry Belafonte, Abiodun Oyewole, Melvin Van Peebles, and many others. The Black Power Mixtape was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

  1. division is the end of us all. either we unite and fight the system or we
    fall. whites and blacks the powers that be don’t care what color you are.

  2. I have that dvd. Very interesting. Too bad my dvd player is kapur. But if
    you can see the entire film it’s worth it.

  3. *”The Black Power Mix Tape” – Excerpts form the Film*
    The Black Power Mixtape 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 artists, activists, musicians and
    scholars.

  9. An amazing piece of work that had to be put together by those outside of
    the US so that the world could see the truth behind the walls of the unseen
    America.
