Angela Davice's haircut and the Tommie Smith's and John Carlos's fists, showing the Black Power salute in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico are the “symbols” of Black Power Movement. In The Black Power Mixtape Goran Hugo Olsson examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement in the African-American community and Diaspora from 1967 to 1975. Combining startlingly fresh and meaningful 16mm footage that had been lying undiscovered in the cellar of Swedish Television for the past 30 years, with contemporary audio interviews from leading African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars, Mixtape looks at the people, society culture and style that filched a change. Filmed interviews include such figures as Stokely Carmichael, Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, and Angela Davis when she was in prison. Utilizing an innovative format that riffs on the popular 70s mixtape format, the Black Power Mixtape is a cinematic and musical journey into the ghettos of America.
