The Black Power Mixtape 1967 – 1975, is being converted into book format. It will include historical speeches and interviews by Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture), Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, Emile de Antonio, and Angela Davis. The book will also include additional contributions by Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Harry Belafonte, Kathleen Cleaver, Robin Kelley, Abiodun Oyewole, Sonia Sanchez, John Forte, and Questlove.
The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 is an extraordinary window into the black freedom struggle in the United States, offering a treasure trove of fresh archival information about the Black Power movement from 1967 to 1975 and vivid portraits of some of its most dynamic participants.
I’m truly interested in reading what Ms. Cleaver has to say. I’ve had the great pleasure of working with her on a project in the past. The book is scheduled to be released February 4.
Hat tip to the folks over at Shadow and Act for the info.
