Film screening, author talk


A series of documentary film screenings that spotlight the struggle for human rights, gender & LGBT equality and protection of the environment. Free admission with a suggested donation of $5 - all donations go to HEAD & HANDS’ Street Work Program.

Author David Austin will be speaking as part of this program. “Finally Got the News” by Stewart Bird and Peter Gessner (1970) followed by “I Am Somebody” by Madeline Anderson (1970) “Finally Got the News” is a forceful, unique documentary that reveals the activities of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers inside and outside the auto factories of Detroit. A testament to the courage of 400 poorly paid black women - hospital workers in Charleston, South Carolina, the now classic “I Am Somebody” is both an inspiring film and an important historical record.

David’s book Fear of a Black Nation will be available for purchase.
