PSP Weekly Community Culture & Political Education Class Tonight Oct. 8th With Bro. Shaka Shakur (7pm-9:30pm)

PSP Weekly Community Culture & Political Education Class Tonight Oct. 8th With Bro. Shaka Shakur  (7pm-9:30pm)
 
TONIGHT! AS PART OF OUR STUDY ON THE TOPIC OF SOCIALIZATION AND THE EFFECTS OF SYSTEMATIC COLONIZATION. WE WILL VIEW THE FILM:

The movie is based on the infamous “Stanford Prison Experiment” conducted in 1971. A makeshift prison is set up in a research lab, complete with cells, bars and surveillance cameras. For two weeks 20 male participants are hired to play prisoners and guards. The
‘prisoners’ are locked up and have to follow seemingly mild rules, and the ‘guards’ are told simply to retain order without using physical violence. Everybody is free to quit at any time, thereby forfeiting payment. In the beginning the mood between both groups is insecure and rather emphatic. But soon quarrels arise and the wardens employ ever more drastic sanctions to confirm their authority.

Political Prisoners Shorts (10 min.)
Yesterday Is Not Too Soon (Interview with Assata Shakur)
Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, 1997
Assata interviewed by activist Dorsey Nunn.
Mama C. Urban Warrior in the African Bush
Joanne Hershfield, 2012, 60 min.
The film explores Mama C’s decade’s long project of coming to terms with who she is—an African American raised in Kansas City, KS, the “jazz-capital of the world,” who has lived most of her life in Africa, the place from where her ancestors were forced to make the “middle-passage.” When she first arrived in Tanzania she tried as hard as she could to “fit in,” wearing khangas, carrying my babies on my back, basket on my head, chewing sugar cane sticks.” As she writes in one of her published poems, “In my freshly-landed, just-got-off-the-boat enthusiasm of living in Africa, I tried to blend, to melt, homogenize, disappear, erase, the essence of what made me who I am, an African, who grew up in and was molded by the ‘hoods’ of America, and I almost lost myself.”
Post-screening Q&A with director Joanne Hershfield and Attorneys Jill Soffiyah Elijah & Joan Gibbs
Friday, October 4th, 7:00pm
Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal
Stephen Vittoria, 2013, 120 min.
Before he was convicted of murdering a policeman in 1981 and sentenced to die, Philadelphia Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal was a gifted journalist and brilliant writer. Now after more than 30 years in prison and despite attempts to silence him, Mumia is not only still alive but continuing to report, educate, provoke and inspire. The film features many supporters of Mumia, including actress Ruby Dee, Cornell West, writer Tariq Ali, and author Michelle Alexander (“The New Jim Crow”).
Post-screening Q&A with director Stephen Vittoria.
Saturday, October 5th, 4:00pm
In My Own Words
2011, 48 min.
Prison interview with the long-jailed Ojore Lutalo. Ojore touches on many issues, from what prisons are, to why he is in prison to the nature of the black radical struggle. Ojore was released in 2009, only to be rearrested a few months later as the alleged “Amtrak Terrorist” in Colorado. All charges were dropped after no one was able to provide any evidence of wrongdoing.
Post-screening Q&A with Ojore Lutalo & Bonnie Kerness
Saturday, October 5th, 7:00pm
Hard Time
Ronald Harpelle, 2013, 40 min.
Hard Time is a film about Robert Hillary King, the only one of the Angola 3 to have been released. King was a political prisoner who spent 29 years in solitary confinement in the infamous Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. The film focuses on racism and human rights in the U.S. penal system, and draws attention to the plight of Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox, the other members of the Angola 3, who have been held in solitary confinement for more than 40 years. Together they formed a prison chapter of the Black Panther Party to fight for better conditions, security for inmates and justice behind bars.
Herman’s House
Angad Bhalla, 2012, 80 min.
Herman Wallace may be the longest-serving prisoner in solitary confinement in the United States—he’s spent more than 40 years in a 6-by-9-foot cell in Louisiana. Imprisoned in 1967 for a robbery he admits, he was subsequently sentenced to life for a killing he vehemently denies. Herman’s House is a moving account of the remarkable expression his struggle found in an unusual project proposed by artist Jackie Sumell. Imagining Wallace’s “dream home” began as a game and became an interrogation of justice and punishment in America. The film takes us inside the duo’s unlikely 12-year friendship, revealing the transformative power of art.
** Followed by Closing Reception and Party**
Invited Director: Melvin Van Peoples
Featured Speakers: Directors Margarita Rosario, Stephen Vittoria, & Joanne L. Hershifield. Attorneys Jill Soffiyah Elijah & Joan Gibbs. Panthers Bullwhip, Cleo Silvers, Pam Hanna, Cisco Torres, Shaba-Om, & Jamal Josephs. Also King Downing, Shaka Shakur, Ojore Lutalo and Bonnie Kerness.
ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

The Afrikan Image Is The Adrinka Symbol Of Cooperation & Interdependence ……..

BOA ME NA ME MOA

Help Me And Let Me Help You!

The Colors Are From The Traditional Black/New Afrikan Liberation Flag:

Red For The Blood That We Have Shed In The Freedom Struggle
Black Is For Our People & The Origin Of All Things In The Universe
Green Is For Mother Afrika, The Rebirth Of Life And For Our Children

The Legacy Continues……….

“All these programs satisfy the deep needs of the community but they are not solutions to our problems. That is why we call them survival programs, meaning survival pending revolution. We say that the survival program of the Black Panther Party is like the survival kit of a sailor stranded on a raft. It helps him to sustain himself until he can get completely out of that situation. So the survival programs are not answers or solutions, but they will help us to organize the community around a true analysis and understanding of their situation. When consciousness and understanding is raised to a high level then the community will seize the time and deliver themselves from the boot of their oppressors”
– Huey P. Newton
