The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 among other things is an extraordinary feat
of editing and archival research, and takes up a familiar period in American history
from a fresh and fascinating angle. In the late 1960s and early '70s Swedish television
journalists traveled to the United States with the intention of "showing the country as
it really is." Some of the images and interviews they collected have been assembled by
Goran Hugo Olsson into a roughly chronological collage that restores a complex human dimension to the racial history of the era. The
film begins at a moment when the concept of black power was promoted by Stokely Carmichael, a veteran of the freedom rides early
in the decade, who, like many young activists, had grown frustrated with the Gandhian, nonviolent philosophy of the Rev. Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Carmichael, who later moved to Guinea and took the name Kwame Ture, is remembered for the militancy of his views
and his confrontational, often slashingly witty speeches, but the Swedish cameras captured another side of him. In the most touching
and arresting scene in "Mixture" he interviews his mother, Mabel, gently prodding her to talk about the effects of poverty and
discrimination on her family. So how much has changed and how has the change taken place. How did we get from the America of
Stokely Carmichael to the America of Barack Obama? We will see and hear commentaries from Harry Belafonte, Stokely Carmichael,
Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis, Danny Glover, Bobby Seale among others. Sweden, 2011, 100 min.
