This showing is also a commemoration of Huey P.'s BIRTHDAY, which is on the 17th.

"A Huey P. Newton Story" is an intimate portrait of Huey P. Newton, the late co-founder of the Black Panther Party. Director Spike Lee and Roger Guenveur Smith collaborate for the 7th time to bring Newton's revolutionary thoughts, philosophies, history and flavor to life. Adapted from Smith's Obie Award winning off-Broadway solo performance of the same name, Spike Lee brings the play from the stage to the screen as only he could. Shot before a live audience, Lee uses his signature mixture of film and archival footage to capture Newton's "inner mind." The film is complemented by period material and original composition from sound designer Marc Anthony Thompson, who recieved an Obie and Audelco Award for his work. The film was also nominated for two NAACP Image Awards and won the Peabody Award.

Join us after the film for a discussion on Race, Class, Revolution, Power, and Privilege.

The event is FREE and open to the public, although donations are appreciated.
