The second installment in our film screening series is happening this Saturday, March 19! The series is co-hosted by Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) and DC Jericho. We’re excited to hear some wise words from some movement vets. It’s a little late, but we’ll be celebrating International Women’s Day with this one, so come join us! More details below:
This film from Freedom Archives shows an event held at the First Congregational Church in Oakland on Sunday, March 14, 2004 with Mabel Williams and Kathleen Cleaver, welcomed and introduced by Angela Davis. These two inspiring women of the 60s Black liberation struggle met to share their personal experiences – resisting the KKK and police repression, forced into exile by government repression, and their international experiences in Third World nations. Mabel Williams, with her late husband Robert F. Williams, met with Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara and Mao Tse Tung to help internationalize support for the Black Liberation Movement. Kathleen Cleaver was Communications Secretary and the first woman on the Central Committee of the Black Panther Party.
A discussion will follow the film. Facebook event here.
