THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE

Archives of The Swedish Government recently found show a Swedish camera crew's shock and awe when they learned from a first hand account as eye witnesses to the Human Rights violations that Black people have endured as a way of American Life.

The Freedom Riders, Stokely Carmichael, H.Rap Brown, Elaine Brown, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, Fred Hampton, Angela Davis.

The most powerful part of THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE is the age of these young proud courageous leaders some as young as 13 and maybe late 20's.

Using discipline, unity and collective cooperation they inspired the world's underdog's to patch up their own wounds and feed their own people and to protect the neighborhoods we live in.
