The Black power mixtape 1967-1975 : a documentary in 9 chapters( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Thirty years later, this lush collection was found languishing in the basement of Swedish Television"--From

#ReGeneration( Visual )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ryan Gosling narrates this engrossing film about social activism, the forces that galvanized the Occupy movement, and how a new generation of young people is coming to terms with a rapidly changing world. The film skillfully weaves commentary from some of the country's leading political and social analysts with personal observations from a collective of young musicians, a tight-knit group of suburban high-school students, and a young conservative family, providing a nuanced look at the myriad challenges facing the next generation of Americans. The result is as personal as it is political, as much a portrait of the contemporary political scene as of a generation of young people finding their way in uncertain times
Rising down by Roots (Musical group)( Recording )

A color map of the sun by Pretty Lights (Musical group)( Recording )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The GRAMMY nominated A Color Map of the Sun builds on the original Pretty Lights sound and style that Smith pioneered. He spent a year composing and recording music and vocals that emulated genres and time periods that spanned the last century, then pressed it to vinyl. He used that vinyl along with a custom built analog modular synth to create A Color Map of the Sun. The resulting album is analog electronica - soulful, electro hip-hop that pays respect to music's immense power to touch listeners emotionally, kinetically and inspirationally"--Artist's website
