Amazing stuff. OR maybe it was just the sheer synergy of having watched The Black Power Mix tapes and seeing Stokey Carmichael in there a few days ago and then finding out tonight that he married Miriam Makeba. Wow, wish I had seen her perform live when she was still alive. What an amazing voice and a magnificent woman.
Makeba was one of a kind and richly deserved to be called Mama Africa. For a film filled with archival footage of her performing and being interviewed, I find it odd that the filmmaker did not identify any of the talking heads. Despite such an egregious flaw, the film is a wonderful tribute to a woman who truly inspired with her voice and by how she lived her life.
