If a more interesting documentary comes along this year, I will be shoc ked.

Check out the trailer for a new documentary called The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 below.

The film largely consists of hundreds of hours of previously-unseen footage shot during the height of the Black Power Movement, including interviews with Angela Davis, Stokely Carmichael and many more. These searing images and fascinating interviews are coupled with poignant and insightful commentary from the likes of Talib Kweli, ?uestlove, Harry Belafonte, Erykah Badu and Bobby Seale.

This is a must see, people. If you actually shelled out $10 to see The Help, consider this your chance at redemption. Just sayin…
