A free community cinema screening of NEGROES WITH GUNS.

NEGROES WITH GUNS follows Williams's journey from southern community leader to exile in Cuba and China, a journey that brought the issue of armed self-defense to the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.
Following each screening will be a lively discussion with filmmaker Sandra Dickson and former Revolutionary Action Movement member Banbose Shango.
