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

The Black Man’s Stake in Vietnam by Eldridge Cleaver (1969)

Eldridge Cleaver, an early leader of the Black Panther Party, wrote this article to the Black men who were being drafted into Vietnam. Cleaver explains the implications of this on a global stage and calls for unity among all colonized people of the world.

The white man is deliberately trying to make the people of the world turn against black Americans, becuase he knows that the day is coming when black Americans will need the help and support of their borthers, friends and natural allies around the world.
