The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

By admin | April 17, 2012


The word mixtape, is one of those that has a loose translation, but essentially stands for a collection of songs or clips that reflect the tastes of the compiler and, most often than not, have a common theme. Occasionally, mixtapes are made not of just music, but of film as well. While mixtapes are becoming more and more popular since they first started appearing in the 80’s, there are still some mixtapes that have yet to surface. Last year, Swedish filmmaker Goran Hugo Olsson produced one of the most compelling mixtapes using footage that had been long forgotten for more than 30 years. Most importantly he revealed the untold story of one of the most misconstrued movements that took place in American history- the Black Power Movement.

Olsson’s film, The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, is an award-winning compilation documentary, displaying facets of the Black Power Movement and the African-American community during those critical years of 1967-1975. The motion picture  told with rare footage, which had been lost in Swedish archives for over 30 years, features some of the Civil Rights Movement’s most influential leaders (that we don’t often hear about) like Malcolm X, Angela Davis, Eldridge Cleaver, and Stokely Carmichael.
