Modern American history, seen through Swedish television

Swedish television did a great deal of reporting from the USA in the 60's and 70's, and THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 consists of several authentic interviews and stories from this period. Narrated by Afro-American musicians, activists and some of the very people from the original footage, THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 paints a bleak, yet hopeful, picture of the shameful conditions of Afro-Americans in the 60's as well as the emergence of militant and political civil rights movements.
