LSPIRG DOC NIGHT: THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE

Join us this Wednesday, June 4 at 6:00pm in the LSPIRG office (165 Albert, 3rd floor) for the first LSPIRG Doc Night where we'll be screening The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975. Presented in partnership with ABS Laurier.

THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement—Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews

We are looking for short (300-400 words) articles that focus on anti-oppression and that tie in one of the following themes: class, gender, environment, or race.

Are you interested in sharing your ideas on a campus, community, or global issue that fits within our themes? Please send your submissions to katelyn@lspirg.org no later than Friday, May 30th at 11:59PM.
