Baldwin's Nigger

Dir. Horace Ové
1968, 46min, 16mm

 

James Baldwin and comedian-activist Dick Gregory speak to a group of radical West Indian students in London about everything from the state of the civil rights movement to the perils of false consciousness.

 
Death May Be Your Santa Claus

Dir. Frankie Dymon Jr.
1969, 36min, Digital

 

This Black Power-meets-avant-garde freak-out is a freewheeling tour through the consciousness of a British black radical shot through with sex, psychedelia, cannibalism, and counterculture politics.
