The John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies at the University of Texas will host its first Documentary Film Showcase with three films exploring the relationship between storytelling and activism. The directors for the three films will be on hand to answer questions.
The films are “Free Angela and All Political Prisoners,” which focuses on Angela Davis’ 1970 trial for murder; “The Past is Not Our Future: Walter Rodney’s Student Years,” which documents the early period of Walter Rodney’s life of activism; and “This Little Light: A Black Feminist Worker’s Story,” which tells the story of Wendi Moore-O’Neal, a Black Feminist freedom singer who was fired from her community organizing job after marrying her wife.
Location: University of Texas at Austin campus, CLA 1.302E, Julius Glickman Conference Center (first floor, RLP Building). Paid parking in the Brazos Garage, 210 E. MLK Blvd.
