"The film brings you up close inside Cornel West's and Bob Avakian's dialogue: the passion, the audacity, the science, the morality, the revolutionary substance. Two courageous voices modeling a morality that refuses to accept injustice – pouring heart and soul into standing together challenging all of us to fight for a world worthy of humanity."

Andy Zee,
co-director of the film


BA Speaks

"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

Sather Gate, UC Berkeley, April 18

Three days after students at UC Berkeley closed down Sather Gate as part of the nationwide Shut It Down actions on April 14, the Black Student Union (BSU) shut things down at Sather Gate again for more than an hour. Saturday, April 18, was “CalDay”—a day to “showcase” the University for thousands of prospective students and their families. The BSU and supporters, carrying a gigantic “BLACK LIVES MATTER” banner, first occupied Sproul Plaza and then blocked Sather Gate. According to the Daily Cal, "In addition to protesting in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement — which emerged following police killings of unarmed black men in various places across the country — the students spoke of 10 demands made by the BSU to Chancellor Nicholas Dirks." Finally, the BSU and other students and supporters marched through campus and down Telegraph Avenue. This past week showed a new combative spirit among students at Cal—keep it up!
