3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 786 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

"In this Frontline report, correspondent Henry Louis Gates, Jr., a Harvard scholar, explores the gaping chasm between the upper and lower classes of black America and probes why it has happened: "How have we reached this point where we have both the largest black middle class and the largest black underclass in our history?" His personal essay draws a picture of growing black success along with the deepening black despair and argues that black upper classes now have more in common with their white colleagues and peers than with those they have left behind in the inner cities. Reviewing the thirty years that have passed since the death of Martin Luther King, Jr., Gates shows that while many blacks reaped the reward of the civil rights movement and affirmative action and gained middle class status, just as many were left behind in an expanding underclass of poverty. The program features interviews with prominent blacks such as Cornel West, William Julius Wilson and Maulana Karenga as well as civil rights veterans like Eldridge Cleaver, Angela Davis and Julian Bond. While they differ on historical interpretation, they all agree that the next phase of the black liberation struggle must be focused on economic deprivation and the class divide."--Container

James Baldwin : the price of the ticket by Karen Thorsen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film presents a look at the life and influence of author James Baldwin (1924-1987), at once a major twentieth century American author, a Civil Rights activist and, for two crucial decades, a prophetic voice calling Americans, Black and white, to confront their shared racial tragedy. Combining archival footage, home movies, television clips, and interviews with friends, family members, and colleagues, as well as readings from his works and scenes from his plays, this documentary captures the passionate intellect and courageous writing of a man who was born Black, impoverished, gifted and gay. Born in Harlem, the eldest of nine children, Baldwin wrote his first play at age eight and went on to write such influential works as Go tell it on the mountain, Giovanni's room, Another country, and The fire next time. This documentary discusses his life in France and Turkey, his homosexuality and his return to the U.S. to participate in the Civil Rights Movement. This comprehensive biography concludes with his death from cancer in 1987 and his funeral at New York's St. John the Divine. Among those who reminisce about the author are Maya Angelou, Amiri Baraka, Ishmael Reed, William Styron, and Baldwin's biographer David Leeming
