The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement— Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews. Thirty years later, this lush collection was found languishing in the basement of Swedish Television. 

See 'The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975' 6:30pm May 8th. Admission is $5 however no one will be turned away if they cannot afford admission to this event. A discussion will follow the screening in the upstairs meeting room at XYZ the Tavern.

Director Göran Olsson and co-producer Danny Glover bring this footage to light in a mosaic of images, music and narration chronicling the evolution one of our nation’s most indelible turning points, the Black Powermovement. 

Music by Questlove and Om'Mas Keith, and commentary from prominent African- American artists and activists who were influenced by the struggle — including Erykah BaduHarry BelafonteTalib Kweli, and Melvin Van Peebles — give the historical footage a fresh, contemporary resonance and makes the film an exhilarating, unprecedented account of an American revolution.
