BLACK POWER MIX TAPE!

(Black History Month Special)

During the rise of The Black Power Movement in the 60’s and 70’s, Swedish Television journalists documented the unfolding cultural revolution for their audience back home, having been granted unprecedented access to prominent leaders such as Angela Davis, the SNCC’s Stokely Carmichael, and Black Panthers founders Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale.  Now, after more than 30 years in storage, this never-before-seen footage spanning nearly a decade is finally available. Director Goran Hugo Olsson presents this mixtape, focusing on the key figures and events in the movement- providing a radically different slant than the biases of the American media. With Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu, Abiodun Oyewole, John Forte, Robin Kelley and more!
