The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

There is plenty of insight to be gained from this documentary that compiles unreleased footage on black power & the Black Panther movement. Through this documentary I learned about many great historical figures that I hadn't heard of or if I had heard of them, didn't really know much of who they were. Figures like Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver. It gave me a real insight on who they were and how powerful their presence was to African Americans in America at the time and in present day.

Our culture is rich and full of history. We've gone through many shades of progression but we still aren't where we need to be. Our struggle continues. The struggle isn't what it once was, but it still exists & there is a new generation to document what the remnant of the past has become.
