The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975
Dir. Göran Hugo Olsson (2010). Black nationalism lives and breathes in this remarkably fresh documentary, sampling and lightly annotating hours of news footage discovered in the vaults of Swedish TV. Although scenes of late-'60s urban disturbances, mass demonstrations, and slum deprivation are not exactly unfamiliar, the footage is distinguished from the American tele-journalism of the period by its interest in hearing from the movements most articulate proponents.
