The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
Time Out says
The film is testament to the power of archival legwork in documentary-filmmaking. But, as powerful as the footage is, the impression is that the makers are using ‘mixtape’ as a hip umbrella term to gloss over it being a disparate mélange of observations about the black experience in America. Director Olsson embellishes the footage with testimonies from modern commentators, including Erykah Badu, John Forté and Melvin Van Peebles. Their impassioned monologues offer contemporary insights into black pride and identity, but the relationship between the audio and visual elements of the film remains vague.
