Independent Lens | If Angela Davis Had Twitter, Way Back When... | PBS

Duration: 01:21
Program: Independent Lens #1314
Broadcast Date: Feb. 13, 2012

Dr. Angela Davis reflects on how social media may have aided her activist pursuits in the 1960s. She is featured in The Black Power Mixtape, which airs this Thursday on Independent Lens. The clip is part of a larger interview conducted by PBS NEWSHOUR's Hari Sreenivasan and produced by ITVS. The documentary is the product of Swedish journalists, who came to the US to document the anti-war and Black Power movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The film combines music, original 16mm footage, and contemporary audio interviews from leading African American artists, activists, musicians, and scholars. www.pbs.org Watch "Independent Lens" films online: video.pbs.org
