Black Power Mixtape
Sun 10 May 2015,

From 1967 to 1975, a team of Swedish journalists chronicled America’s civil rights movement. Their extraordinary 16mm material – including Stokely Carmichael’s tour of Europe, the Black Panther headquarters and a passionate interview with Angela Davis in jail – is combined with recent commentary from leading black artists and activists to create a piercing insight into the movement’s life and legacy backed by a great soundtrack from The Roots’ Questlove. With an introduction by Come The Revolution… curators Liz Chege and Adam Murray.
