Screening: Black Power Mixtape followed by Q&A
Part of Islington Black History Month Festival 2014
Film: Black Power Mixtape followed by Q&A discussion on Black Feminism: then and now with special guests
Lost in an archive in Sweden for 30 years, The Black Power Mixtape is a compilation feature documentary film that displays the story of the African-American community between the years 1967-1975. Told with sparkling and beautiful footage as well as narration by contemporary interviews, and music by The Roots, Michael Jackson and Erykah Badu, this is an amazing chart of the civil rights movement, and the people, society, culture and style that fuelled a change. Featuring footage of many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement including Angela Davis (pictured).
The film will be followed by a special Q&A discussion with special guests, reflecting on the legacy and influence of Angela Davis, and the voice and role of black feminism today within the context of contemporary culture and social injustices.
