FIRST RAINBOW COALITION

MONDAY, NOV. 18 • NOON

FREE COMMUNITY CINEMA

In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form a multi-ethnic coalition with the Young Lords Organization and the Young Patriots. Banding together in one of the most segregated cities in post-war America, the Rainbow Coalition changed the face of 1960s Chicago politics and created an organizing model for future activists and politicians. 56 min + discussion

Themes: civic engagement and community organizing; multi-ethnic coalition and community building; police and community relations; affordable housing; racism and classism.

Discussion and Q&A immediately following the screening with special guests Ericka Huggins, activist, educator, and former member of the Black Panther Party and James Tracy, historian, author (Hillbilly Nationalists, Urban Race Rebels and Black Power)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TICKETING:

Community Cinema tickets are still free, but you must have a ticket to attend the screening. Please select the “Print-at-Home” option when ordering your ticket online, and then either print your ticket at home to bring with you, or show it on your mobile device at the door.

Please arrive earlyfor all Community Cinema screenings. Since this is a free screening, we experience many no-shows and must overbook the theater in order to compensate. Your ticket will not guarantee you a seat if we are already full when you arrive.

You will no longer receive reminder emails about your attendance or asking if you need to cancel, so if you register for a screening but find you are unable to attend, we would be extremely grateful if you would email us at [email protected] to cancel your reservation so we can offer your seat to another patron (and help us pare down the number of aforementioned no-shows).

Thanks for your support of Community Cinema!
