In the 1960s, Stokely Carmichael was targeted by a covert FBI program aimed at discrediting Black activists.
In his portrait of Kwame Ture (born Stokely Carmichael, 1941–1998), Sellers portrays the chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee as a persuasive and dramatic orator. By combining images from two different moments of the speech, Sellers shows us the varied moods of two different moments in the speech and enhances the viewer’s sense of being present at the event.
