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), the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews.
