Join us for a film screening of Free Angela & All Political Prisoners. The film traces the high-stakes crime, political movement, and trial that catapults the 26 year-old philosophy professor at UCLA into a revolutionary political icon. Nearly 40 years later, and for the first time, Angela Davis speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedom. This viewing is a part of a film series about black power and black art with a Bay Area focus, curated by Cornelius Moore of California Newsreel.
California Newsreel has produced and distributed cutting-edge social issue films for activists and educators since 1968. Today it is the oldest, independent non-profit documentary center in the country and the first to integrate media production and distribution with the media needs of contemporary social change movements.
