Free Angela & All Political Prisoners Movie Screening

June 19, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

(sent from Dara Nix-Stevenson, ELC alumna)

You are cordially invited to the upcoming Greensboro screening of Free Angela & All Political Prisoners which will premiere Wednesday, June 19th 7:30-9:30 pm at the Carousel Cinema. Advanced ticket purchase, by June 12th, is required. Advanced tickets can be purchased from http://www.tugg.com/events/4217

Directed and written by Shola Lynch, Free Angela and All Political Prisoners tells the dramatic story of how a young professor’s social justice activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a bloody shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.  In this historical verite style documentary, marking the 40th anniversary of the acquittal on charges of murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy, Angela Davis recounts the politics and actions that branded her a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide movement for her freedom as a political prisoner.  At its core, the story wrestles with the meaning of political freedom in a democracy negotiated between the people and its government.  Strong, attractive, and engaging, Angela Davis is one such person who became a symbol at the center of this still relevant power struggle. Please view the movie trailer at the link below.

Peolpe are encouraged to purchase tickets sooner rather than later.  If you cannot attend, please consider making a ticket donation to an associate, friend, or family member.
