Justice for the SF8! Black Panthers Fight Government Persecution…Again.

This modern-day witchhunt is based on confessions obtained over 35 years ago by police torture.
Featuring a showing of the documentary “Legacy of Torture: The War against the Black Liberation Movement,” followed by a panel discussion with Richard Brown, SF8 defendant and Western Addition community organizer, and Nellie Wong, revolutionary poet and political prisoner activist.
