Report Back on the Bay Area Revolt

11428473_1483102795335370_6353466629172361692_n

Saturday June 17th, a little after 7-10pm

On November 24th, 2014, Oakland, CA exploded in revolt against the non-indictment of Darren Wilson for the murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson.

This rebellion spread across the Bay Area and lasted for nearly three weeks straight.

Join a participant in the rebellion for an intimate look at what went down, the broader social context in which it occurred, and an update on the current situation in the Bay Area as of June 2015.

There will be a short movie and discussion, as well as free literature (including a number of pamphlets and flyers distributed during the rebellion.)

This is a free event, but donations are encouraged. 100% of donations go to the Minnehaha Free Space.

The event won’t start exactly at 7pm, so people have time to come from the TransDykeQueerMarch 2015: #blackqueerlivesmatter, #nativequeerlivesmatter, #translivesmatter

Movie Night: Fruitvale Station

fruitvale station

Join us for Movie Night, Tuesday June 9 at 5:30pm

Fruitvale Station is a 2013 American drama film written and directed by Ryan Coogler. It is Coogler’s first feature-length film and is based on the events leading to the death of Oscar Grant, a young man who was killed by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle at the Fruitvale Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Station in Oakland, California.

The film stars Michael B. Jordan as Oscar Grant. Forest Whitaker is one of the film’s producers.[4] Kevin Durand and Chad Michael Murray play the two BART police officers involved in Grant’s death. The names of the officers were changed for the film.[5]

Fruitvale Station debuted at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film.[4] It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where it won the award for Best First Film. The film was released in theaters July 12, 2013.[6] It received critical acclaim upon its release and earned other awards.
