The Ghosts of March 21

March 20, 2014

The NLGSF is a cosponsor of this event.

An interrogation of race, power and justice in the contemporary United States, The Ghosts of March 21 focuses on the death of 26-year-old Lovelle Mixon and the factors that led him to kill four Oakland police officers before losing his life in the deadliest confrontation in Bay Area law enforcement history. Retracing the events and aftermath of March 21, 2009, this documentary examination of the encounter’s underlying contradictions challenges the mainstream narrative of the confrontation and sheds light on the profound consequences of America’s legacy of racial oppression and white supremacy.

Join Block Report Radio, /CRONISTAS/ Digital Media Collective, and for the East Bay film premiere and a panel discussion on March 20, from 7-10 p.m., at La Pena Cultural Center, 3105 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley.
