“Writer James Baldwin probably best captured the sentiments of Black Americans in relation to Angela Davis when he concluded: “… we must fight for your life as though it were our own–which it is­­­– and render impassable with our bodies the corridor to the gas chamber. For if they will be for us that night.” – Robert A. DeLeon (Jet Magazine Nov. 18, 1971)

“…The sentiments of Black Americans still live on for many bodies that are held captive like Angela Davis.” – Mars D. Silver

In cohesion with the ICONIC: Black Panther exhibition, Arts Bank Cinema will be hosting a two-month exploration of Black Panther Party cinema and footage of the era. Free Angela Davis and All Other Political Prisoners is a documentary that chronicles the life of educator and activist, Angela Davis and how her social activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.

Come out and watch the Free Angela Davis and All Other Political Prisoners and join in for a discussion following the documentary exploring the life of Angela Davis and the forward-looking contributions of Black women of the Black Panther Party.

Arts Bank Cinema screenings are traditionally on Fridays. This screening is a Sunday matinee in cohesion with the ICONIC: Black Panther exhibition. All other Arts Bank Cinema screenings will resume to Friday evenings.
