The Black Power Mixtape Inspires Students in NYC

Posted on March 15, 2012

The Education Department at the Tibeca Film Institute will screen the documentary before more than 200 high school students at the Tribeca Cinemas on March 21 at 11am ET.


This spring, the Education Department at Tribeca Film Institute is rethinking the way they share film with the community. In partnership with ITVS Community Classroom, and in conjunction with their Women and Girls Lead initiative, they will screen The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 on March 21st at 11am. A film by Goran Hugo Olsson, The Black Power Mixtape brings together never before seen footage of Harlem, New York in the 1970s, and black power leaders like Stokely Carmichael and Angela Davis. Watch Davis discuss the film in an ITVS interview conducted earlier this year, after the jump.


Over 200 students from high schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx will come to Tribeca Cinemas to view the film. The screening will be followed by a workshop session with female African American community leaders and young artists around the major themes of black and minority empowerment, female leadership, and community activism.
