Finally Got The News is a forceful documentary that reveals the activities of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers inside and outside the auto factories of Detroit. "Rather ordinary people becoming very angry with the system. Ideological in the best sense: it is a film about ideas [and] presents a serious strategy for mass working class action. It speaks of a specific time and specific experiences in terms that will remain relevant as long as working people are not able to control their own lives." – Cineaste Magazine. (Stewart Bird, Rene Lichtman and Peter Gessner; 1970; 55 min)

May Day documents the Black Panther Party's massive rally in San Francisco on May 1, 1969.

NOW ON VIEW

SIGNS OF CHANGE:
Social Movement Cultures 1960s to Now >>>
Guest curated by Dara Greenwald + Josh MacPhee
Jan. 23 - March 8, 2009


"Covering issues from global warming to the highly localized, Signs of Change demonstrates that though history may be taught mostly in 'broad strokes,' says MacPhee, 'This isn't about broad strokes, it's about how it affects everyday people's lives.'" - Pittsburgh City Paper

o

"Signs of Change is a bullseye sharp exhibit, spinning webs of history, knitting years of yarn, spitting pure and rare movement history ...Take your time with this exhibit and you won’t be sorry." - Political Poet(ry)
