The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
Monday, May 8, 2017
In the 60s and 70s, a group of Swedish journalists traveled to the U.S. with the intention of “showing the country as it really is.” The result is an extraordinary documentary that examines the Black Power Movement from 1967-1975, with appearances by Angela Davis, Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton. For tonight’s presenters, the queer art collective fierce pussy — a group that emerged in the early 1990s from the members’ participation in ACT UP — the film is “a look back at a time [that is] still very relevant today as we continue to create strategies of resistance in the current social and political moment.” What a perfect way for us to kick off this special series – Summer of Resistance!
