Bloom Movie Night – Negroes with Guns: Rob Williams and Black Power

February 21, 2010

Robert F. Williams was the forefather of the Black Power movement and broke dramatic new ground by internationalizing the African American struggle. Negroes with Guns is not only an electrifying look at an historically erased leader, but also provides a thought-provoking examination of Black radicalism and resistance and serves as a launching pad for the study of Black liberation philosophies. Insightful interviews with historian Clayborne Carson, biographer Timothy Tyson, Julian Bond, and a first person account by Mabel Williams, Robert’s wife, bring the story to life.

The Bloom Collective will be screening Negroes With Guns this Thursday, February 25. This California Newsreel film is a powerful, which will be followed by discussion.
