This is from IFC (Independent Film Center):
“An extraordinary documentary that we played in 2011, THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE: 1967-1975 is available for free this month on Amazon and Apple TV, as the country grapples with the ongoing scourge of violence against the Black community.
Through archival conversations with leaders of the Black Power Movement—including Angela Davis, Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, and Eldridge Cleaver—enriched by contemporary interviews with Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu and others, this searing chronicle offers a vital look at our recent history.
We remain committed to providing a platform for Black stories. Black Lives Matter.
THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE: 1967-1975 can be streamed at no cost until June 21. Thanks to our sister company, IFC Films, for making the film available.
