THE FIRST RAINBOW COALITION: Intercommunity Alliances Past & Present

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Special Film Screening & Party for the 10th Anniversary Edition of Hillbilly Nationalists, Urban, Race Rebels & Black Power

Join us for a post screening conversation about inter-sectional alliances past and present with Rainbow Coalition veterans Ericka Huggins (Black Panther Party), Hy Thurman (Young Patriots Organization) and a new generation of activists: Thandiwe Abdullah, Black Lives Matter LA, Sammie Ablaza Wills (Asians 4 Black Lives), and Nick De Renzi (Critical Resistance, Oakland).

In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form alliances across lines of race and ethnicity with other community-based movements in the city, including the Latino group the Young Lords Organization and the working-class young southern whites of the Young Patriots. These disparate groups banded together in one of the most segregated cities in postwar America to confront issues such as police brutality and substandard housing, calling themselves the Rainbow Coalition.The First Rainbow Coalition tells the movement's story through rare archival footage and interviews with former coalition members in the present-day.
