Extraordinary New George Jackson Footage

Posted on by 0 comment

Preserve the past – illuminate the present – shape the future.

George Jackson was a revolutionary theoretician, political prisoner and organizer. This extraordinary video is from a 16mm film “work print” made in 1971–1972, and includes interviews with George Jackson, Georgia Jackson (George and Jonathan Jackson’s mother) and Angela Davis, while she was still in the Marin County Courthouse Jail, before her acquittal.  The discovery of such amazing, previously unknown historic materials always leaves us thrilled and in awe, deepening our understanding of those times and affirming the mission of the Freedom Archives.

We are also excited to announce The Freedom Archives Benefit Concert featuring Dead PrezKev Choice, Jennifer Johns, Jahi As PE 2.0, Sellassie, DJ Leydis and more.
