'What We Want, What We Believe' and 'Every Mother's Son' followed by Q&A with the director
What We Want, What We Believe (Excerpt)
Dir. Roz Payne, 2006, 20 min.
Interview with Field Marshall Donald Cox who breaks down the purpose of the Black Panther Party.
Every Mother's Son
Dir. Tami Gold, 2004, 52 min.
Iris Baez never meant to become an activist. Kadiatou Diallo never meant to live in the United States, fighting for justice for her son. And Doris Busch Boskey never thought she'd become a spokesperson against police brutality. This film profiles three New York mothers who unexpectedly find themselves united to seek justice and transform their grief into an opportunity for profound social change. The victims' stories are tragic, and the courage subsequently shown by their mothers heroic. As one witness says, 'As long as there's a mother, we'll continue to fight.'
