"COINTELPRO 101" Film Presentation & Discussion

Oct 21, 2010, 7:00 PM
McGill Auditorium, Murdock Hall - Forest Grove

"COINTELPRO 101" takes a comprehensive look at actions the US government took to suppress social movements from 1956 through 1971. The film connects this history to contemporary issues and ideas in social-movement studies.

The film will be followed by a discussion period with longtime activists Kent Ford and Claude Marks.

Ford is the founder of the Portland Chapter of the Black Panther Party. Marks is a former anti-imperialist political prisoner and is the founder and director of The Freedom Archives, a political, cultural oral history project, restoration center, and media production facility in San Francisco. 

Under his direction, The Freedom Archives has released several documentary CDs and videos combining restored historical audio and contemporary interviews including "Cointelpro 101," the most recent project.
