‘Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975’ is a compilation film featuring extraordinary footage of the black power movement’s struggle against US racism, injustice and the colonial wars of the late 1960’s while building alternative forms of social solidarity and education. Rare, intimate interviews feature alongside rousing speeches from figures including Stokely Carmichael and Angela Davis – this film shines a light on one of the most important political movements of the last century.
Following the screening, guest speaker Margaret Henry, film producer at Postcolonial Films, will be in conversation with Stella Dadzie, co-founder of OWAAD (Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent), to reflect on their experiences and the legacies of these movements, as well as on cross-cultural, cross-historical dimensions. Come and join the discussion!
