Liberation Film Series: Born in the Struggle

The Year of the Rebellion
Commemorating the 1967 Detroit Rebellion

Sunday, July 30 at 2 PM

"Born in the Struggle" is a documentary by Kamasi Hill that tells the untold story of the children of the 1960’s and 1970’s American radical activists. The film addresses the question of “what was/is life like for the children of the 1960’s and 70’s radicals?,” explores their reflections and ruminations on their childhood, the influences of their parents, and how the activism of their parents affected their life. The driving narratives of film will be people like Tupac Shakur, Ayanna Gregory, Fred Hampton Jr., Ras Baraka and Tanehisi Coates  

This program is part of The Wright Museum's opening week of events for Say It Loud: Art, History, Rebellion, and also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion.
