MCLM in association with the BADWest St. Clair Bourne 4th Monday Documentary Series will present a free screening of Shola Lynch's film: Free Angela and All Political Prisoners.

The screening will be held on Monday, November 24 at 7 pm at the Mayme Clayton Library and Museum, 4130 Overland Avenue, Culver City. Free parking is available.

Free Angela is a feature length documentary about Angela Davis. The high stakes crime, political movement, and trial that catapults the 26 year-old newly appointed philosophy professor at the University of California at Los Angeles into a seventies revolutionary political icon.

Nearly 40 years later, and for the first time, Angela Davis speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedomThe screening will be followed by a Q&A Ayuko Babu.

The writer and director Shola Lynch has been mining the rich terrain of black American history for a while now, notably in the award-winning 2004 documentary Chisholm '72: Unbought & Unbossed, about the 1972 presidential campaign by the late Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American and the first woman to mount a serious, credible run for the office, and most recently with last year's Free Angela Davis and all Political Prisoners, her soulful, illuminating documentary about the activist icon's notorious 1971 trial on charges of conspiracy, kidnapping, and murder.

The November 24 Monday screening will be the last for 2014. The series will resume in January 2015.
