Koret Auditorium

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.

Ticket Information

Free. No additional ticket required. Seating is limited and first-come, first-served. Seating tickets will be distributed an hour before the event begins in front of the Koret Theater.
