Description

On what became a 10 month stay in the USA for him and his band now known as Nigeria ’70, Fela discovers the politics of Black Power, of Liberation, of the US Counter Culture and a new radical take on African history. The plethora of voices telling the story are joined by Sandra Smith (now Sandra Izsadore), then an active member of the Black Panther Party and Fela’s lover and political and musical catalyst.
