Upcoming stuff at BR

At 7pm Monday May 25 we’ll be screening the 2011 doco: The Black Power Mixtape

The Black Power Mixtape is a compilation feature documentary that illustrates the story of the Black Power movement in African-Amercian communities. It features rare archival footage shot between 1967 and 1975, including some of the leading figures of black panthers in the U.S., like Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton and Angela Davis. This movie is a powerful reminder of what the black power movement is about and what it was trying to achieve.

“When someone asks me about violence, I just find it incredible, because what it means is that the person who’s asking that question has absolutely no idea what black people have gone through, what black people have experienced in this country.” Angela Davis


Then at 7pm Tues May 26 we’ll be holding a radical discussion on ‘New atheism’ and racism. The talk will focus on the recent Chomsky vs Harris debate and new varieties of islamophobic and militaristic atheism.
