Nickelodeon offers free Civil Rights Sundays films

October 9, 2013 

The Nickelodeon is offering free Civil Rights Sundays films.

The next film at 3 p.m. Oct. 13, is “Black Power Mixtape.” Swedish journalists discovered a collection of interviews and footage in the basement of Swedish Television 30 years after it was recorded. Filmed between 1967-1975, Black Power Mixtape mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the United States, drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. It includes many leaders of the Black Power Movement, among them Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion on the Black Power Movement in 1960s South Carolina featuring:

— Moderator: S. Malik Whitaker, S.C. Department of Social Services

— Samuel “Kabisa” Edwards of Kwanzaa House

— Bishop Redfern II of CityLight Ministries

— Cleveland Sellers, president of Voorhees College

Civil Rights Sundays is a partnership between the Nickelodeon, Columbia SC 63 and SCETV.

Tickets for the Oct. 13 show are free; reserve at nickelodeon.org. The theater is at 1607 Main St. in Columbia.
