Power and Protest! The eighth installment of our ongoing series on the topic of race and space in Los Angeles features 16mm films from the archives of The Southern California Library including Black Panther, aka Off The Pig, “a compelling document of the Black Panther Party leadership in 1967.” (Third World Newsreel) plus student protest films from the 1940s (San Diego), 1960s (Mexico City) and 1970s (UCLA). As an added bonus, we’ll screen Repression, a 1969 (never completed) film about the Black Panthers by Dennis Hicks and Los Angeles Newsreel, newly scanned by Dino Everett, USC’s Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archivist. FREE EVENT! ARCHIVIST IN ATTENDANCE! EVERYONE WELCOME!
