From Protest to Resistance, captures the rapid changes in the student movement that brought forth the pacifist antiwar movement, the free speech movement and the black power struggle. The film is full of street action, dialogues with draft dodgers in Canada, and antiwar activists in various milieus and activities. Dramatic scenes of demonstrators lined up facing counter lines of police, youths overturning police cars and police charging, clubs flailing at demonstrators’ heads. It’s still fascinating to see and hear Kwame Ture (aka Stokeley Carmichael) exciting large crowds, even after 44 years.
These screenings are free and open to the public but a suggested $5 donation will be appreciated. Popcorn and beverages will be provided. Please note: The location for any particular screening may vary.
