Black Panther Film Festival, October 3, 7pm- Lifes Essentials With Ruby Dee- Pair of Tkts
Black Panther Film Festival, October 3, 7pm- Lifes Essentials With Ruby Dee- Pair of Tkts
Contribution: $40.00

Your name will be at the door.

It’s hard not to feel like you're eavesdropping on a private family
conversation while watching Muta'Ali Muhammad's documentary tribute to his
grandparents Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. Lovingly dedicated to "Grandpa & Gram
Rudy" in the opening credits, Life's Essentials With Ruby Dee is a deeply
personal effort in which the filmmaker is as much the subject as his famed
actor/activist relatives. Structured in the form of an open cinematic letter to
his grandmother, the film begins with Muhammad lamenting the fact that he never
had the opportunity to interview Davis in depth before his sudden 2005 death in
a Miami hotel room. Among those paying tribute to Davis at his funeral was Bill
Clinton, who declared, "He would have been a very good president of the United
States."

This eventually prompted the filmmaker to interview his grandmother before it
was too late — she died at the age of 91 — with the resulting documentary
including many excerpts from their filmed conversations as well as a brief
history of her and Davis' life and career. Dee meeting Davis when they
co-starred in the 1946 Broadway play Jeb. They married in 1948, with the union
lasting over 56 years. "I thought it was a pretty good use of a Thursday," Davis
later said about their wedding day.

Fred Hampton was the leader of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party.

This film depicts his brutal murder by the Chicago police and its subsequent
investigation, but also documents his activities in organizing the Chapter, his
public speeches, and the programs he founded for children during the last
eighteen months of his life.

An unprecedented, historically significant documentary on the slain leader of
the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party, Fred Hampton, killed in 1969 by
Chicago police while he slept in his bed in his apartment. Filmmakers Mike Gray
and Howard Alk were already shooting a portrait of this charismatic speaker and
community organizer when his murder occurred.

Followed by live performance by Horace Glasper, known for his work on Cuttin Da
Mustard (2008), King of Stage: The Woodie King Jr. Story (2018) and Heaven Ain't
Hard to Find (2010). He will be performing a skit entitled “Fred.”

Followed by Short piece by King Downing "...But You Can't Kill A Revolution"

King Downing is an attorney and founder of the Human Rights-Racial Justice
Center, which advo- cates and organizes on criminal and economic injustice,
including police practices, racial profil- ing and mass incarceration. HRRJC
advocacy ex- amples range from youth-criminal justice for the organization of
Nicole Bell, (whose fiancé Sean Bell was killed by the NYPD) to the Ferguson
Le- gal Defense Committee to tribal border sover- eignty. HRRJC is a member of
the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow.

Iris Baez, a Puerto Rican from the Bronx, never meant to become an activist.
Kadiatou Diallo never meant to leave her home in Africa and move to the U.S., to
fight for justice for her son. Doris Busch Boskey, a Jewish woman from the
suburbs, never thought she'd become a spokesperson against police brutality.
This film profiles three women from very different walks of life who find
themselves united to seek justice after their sons are unjustly killed by
police. Their stories are tragic, but their courage is transformative.

Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland explores the death of Sandra
Bland, a politically active 28-year-old African American who, after being

leading to national protests. The film team followed the two-year case beginning
shortly after Bland's death, exploring the questions of what really happened to
her, and what we may learn from her tragedy.

“I’m here to change history. I’m ready to do what I need to do for this
next generation.”
