Saul Landau Film Series: From Protest to Resistance

IPS Conference Room 1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW, 6th Floor, Washington, DC, United States

This film captures the rapid changes in the students' 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. Horrific 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 Stokeley Carmichael speaching, even after 30 years.
