*February Events and Hours*
Center for Marxist Education | 550 Mass Ave, Cambridge | 2nd Floor
*Sunday Film & Discussion*
*Black Power Mixtape*
Sunday, February 22
*Two Showings: 2:00pm and 6:00pm*
During the rise of The Black Power Movement in the 60 s and 70 s, Swedish
Television journalists documented the unfolding cultural revolution for
their audience back home, having been granted unprecedented access to
prominent leaders such as Angela Davis, the SNCC's Stokely Carmichael, and
Black Panthers founders Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale. Now, after more
than 30 years in storage, this never-before-seen footage spanning nearly a
decade of Black Power is finally available. Director Goran Hugo Olsson
presents this mixtape, highlighting the key figures and events in the
movement, as seen in a light completely different than the narrative of the
American media at the time. Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu, Abiodun Oyewole, John
Forte, and Robin Kelley are among the many important voices providing
narration and commentary, adding modern perspective to this essential time
capsule of African-American history. (96 minutes)
