"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."

April 25: Thousands Rally and March Through Baltimore Streets to Demand Justice for Freddie Gray

The people are still out in the streets in Baltimore—and very rightly so, because the killer cops who brutalized and murdered Freddie Gray are still walking around unindicted. On Saturday, over two thousand gathered at the corner where on April 12 he was chased down and cuffed by cops—he died in police custody a week later. There were lots of people from the 'hood, a very poor Black area—but also many from other parts of the city and from other cities nearby and further away; people of all different nationalities and from different walks of life; various political organizations and trends. One contingent—with members of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, including family members of police murder victims, and the Revolution Club from New York City—marched with a huge banner of the poster showing pictures and names of dozens of people killed by police around the country.

The march first went to the Western District police station where the cops had taken Freddie, and then headed downtown, taking over the streets for a couple of miles and joining others already at the City Hall plaza. By this time the protesters numbered several thousand. But people definitely were not in a mood to stop there. With shouts of "stop the ballgame," hundreds took off again through the downtown streets to Camden Yards, surrounded by a large number of police, where the Orioles baseball game was about to start. Protesters weren't able to shut down the game—but there was major disruption of business-as-usual in Baltimore, and some protesters confronted police into the night, with news reports of at least a dozen arrests.
