This film is meant to be about Stokely Carmichael

dir. Isis Thompson 

Having spent years surrounding herself with white middle class culture, filmmaker Isis Thompson asks herself why making a film about her cousin, 60’s black radical Stokely Carmichael, is such a battle? Is it because, as her friends tell her, she isn’t very good at being black?

This film features as a bonus on the DVD of Black Power Mixtape.
