"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."

BAsics 1:13


The problem is not violence...

May 4, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


The problem is not “violence” carried out by people standing up against oppression. Who, today, would not say that the violence of enslaved people rebelling against slavery was just and positive? And who, today, would defend the violence of the slaveholders—the violence that made their very system possible, the violence used every day to keep people enslaved, or the violence they used to defend that system when it was, finally, under attack? Only a racist reactionary. Likewise, the problem today is NOT the resistance of the people, but the massive reactionary violence carried out to defend a system of modern-day slavery—by the police, the army, and that whole apparatus of force—to crush people down.
