Movie Trailer: The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

The Black Power movement remains one of the most fascinating and influential periods of American history.  Its attitudes, slogans, and imagery have been adopted time and again by people whose understanding doesn’t penetrate beyond those surface elements.  It largely remains a mystery from those who could benefit the most from its lessons. The rappers and educators who’ve tried to keep its spirit alive have been largely marginalized by the mainstream media.  Now would be an ideal time to reintroduce that message to the American populace, seeing as how America’s first Black presidency is currently Under Siege.  Like manna from heaven, The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 appears on the scene to remind the United States of its true heritage.
