This archival scrapbook of the black power movement was assembled from footage shot by Swedish journalists in the ’60s and ’70s. The movie gets beyond the familiar fetishistic trappings — the Black Panthers posing with their guns and Che-knockoff Marxist berets, etc. — to reveal the humanistic yearnings of the key players. The Black Power Mixtape 1967?1975 is a tangy raw stew of history, even if it never begins to confront the contradictions that bedeviled black militancy. B+
