Black Power Mix Tape
Thursday, April 11th The Cinema Conversation Series presents THE BLACK POWER MIX TAPE 1967-1975 with presenting partners the Purdue Calumet  Black Student Union and Social Justice Club.

Black Power Mix TapeTHE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power MovementStokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among themthe filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews.

Thirty years later, this lush collection was found languishing in the basement of Swedish Television station. Director Göran Olsson and co-producer Danny Glover bring this footage to light in a mosaic of images, music and narration chronicling the evolution one of our nation's most indelible turning points, the Black Power movement.

Music by Questlove and Om'Mas Keith, and commentary from prominent African- American artists and activists who were influenced by the struggle -- including Erykah Badu, Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, and Melvin Van Peebles -- give the historical footage a fresh, contemporary resonance and makes the film an exhilarating, unprecedented account of an American revolution.
