Black Power Mixtape is a fawning documentary released in 2011 made up of archive footage from 1967-75. The one clip that really struck me was rather young children at the Black Panther headquarters in California singing ‘Pick up the guns and put the pigs on the run’. It is available on Youtube.

It also features Angela Davis saying that ‘the government and the CIA were involved in the distribution of drugs’, a conspiracy theory commonly held amongst black people in America that black drug addiction was purposefully engineered by the government.
