Join us for a screening of “Negroes with Guns: Rob Williams and Black Power” at the Carnegie Library – Homewood Branch on Feb. 20, as part of the 2019 From Slavery to Freedom Film Series presented by the African American Program of the Heinz History Center.
About the Film
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.
Run time: 53 minutes
Admission is free. Registration is not required.
This public program will be held at the Carnegie Library – Homewood Branch, 7101 Hamilton Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa. 15208.
