Watch a rare interview with Angela Davis from The Black Power Mixtape.
It’s not often that we find rare interviews on Black history collected in one moving film, but the Black Power Mixtape does just that.
Produced by a Swedish television group, the documentary showcases historical footage investigating U.S. Black culture and the Civil Rights movement between 1967-1975. Throughout the film, Black scholars, hip-hop artists, and historians share their stories and perspectives on the climatic time in history.
