The film has already been released on DVD, but if you're in London and want to see The Black Power Mixtape: 1967 - 1975 on the big screen, you still can.  And as an added bonus, you'll also get to be present for a Q&A session with activist and writer Darcus Howe, who garnered international attention during the summer riots of 2011 after clashing with a BBC news presenter.

Darcus Howe
The Bajan Reporter Darcus Howe

"I have never taken part in a single riot. I've been on demonstrations that ended up in a conflict.  Have some respect for an old West Indian negro and stop accusing me of being a rioter because you wanted for me to get abusive. You just sound idiotic — have some respect."

That was Darcus Howe's response to BBC News 24 anchor Fiona Armstrong asking, “You are not a stranger to riots yourself I understand, are you? You have taken part in them yourself?”

The BBC issued an apology to Howe soon after.  Come out to Rough Trade East on Friday, January 20 @ 6:30PM, to hear what he has to say about that, and about the Black Power Mixtape.

The event is FREE.
