ITVS Community Cinema and KQED present a Special Preview Screening of NEGROES WITH GUNS: Rob Williams and Black Power
NEGROES WITH GUNS: Credited with inspiring the Black Power movement, Robert Williams led his North Carolina hometown to defend itself against the Ku Klux Klan and challenge repressive Jim Crow laws. Negroes with Guns follows Williams’s journey from southern community leader to exile in Cuba and China, a journey that brought the issue of armed self-defense to the forefront of the Civil Rights movement.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring organizations working on issues of black power and civil rights.
Admission is Free and open to the public! Wheel chair accessible.
Sponsors: ITVS Community, KQED Community Outreach San Francisco Public Library, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, and California Newsreel
