Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Addressing what might be thought of as standard historical and contemporary subjects with startlingly radical means. . . . Göran Hugo Olsson's Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 is a collage of archival footage recorded in America, mostly by Swedish journalists, in the era of African American militancy. The images, accompanied by present-day voice-over reflections from historians, rappers, artists, and veterans of the era's racial politics, offer revelations about events and personalities we thought we understood completely."—The New York Times

"We have much to learn from these visionary organizers who sought to redefine and re-imagine democracy, whose sense of empowerment derived from the belief that the people could be the architects for change."—Danny Glover, from the preface

Here is the Black Power movement as you've never seen it. Powerful interviews, including extended material, with Stokely Carmichael and Angela Davis; whole new sections on Huey P. Newtown, who was cut from the film almost entirely; Shirley Chisholm, who does not appear in the film at all; and material on the defense campaign for Joan Little, a very controversial and successful activist campaign that was one of the first Angela Davis took up out of prison. The book will introduce a new generation to the legacy of Black Power.

Includes new commentary by: Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Harry Belafonte, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis, Robin Kelley, Abiodun Oyewole, Sonia Sanchez, Bobby Seale, and Questlove.

Synopsis:

The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 is an extraordinary window into the black freedom struggle in the United States, offering a treasure trove of fresh archival information about the Black Power movement from 1967 to 1975 and vivid portraits of some of its most dynamic participants, including Angela Davis and Stokely Carmichael.

"This powerful book linked to the poignant film is a grand contribution to our understanding of contemporary America."

—Cornel West
