Seattle, if you haven't already heard, you've got another chance to listen up to Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975!
Editor Pat Thomas will be back in town for the first time in over a year on Saturday, March 23rd at the Cinema Salon.
Pat will be joined by Ron Johnson, founding member of the Seattle Black Panther Party, and Seattle University professor Gary Perry. They'll discuss the legacy of the 1965 Watts Riots, the L.A. Rebellion and social justice, reviving a cultural, social, artistic and political framework now lost to memory.
This event is part of L.A. Rebellion, a special weekend-series of Black Cinema hosted by our friends at the Northwest Film Forum throughout March.
I've raved before about how fascinating Pat's presentations are here on the FLOG, but it truly bears repeating. And to hear he'll be joined by Ron and Gary truly makes this event one not to miss! Plus, it's FREE, so you don't have to miss it.
This special salon starts at 6:00 PM. The Cinema Salon is hosted by The Project Room at 1315 East Pine Street on Capitol Hill.
