      EVENT DETAILS
      The First Rainbow Coalition (Film Screening)

      In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form alliances across lines of race and ethnicity with other community-based movements in the city, including the Latino group, the Young Lords Organization and the southern whites of the Young Patriots. Banding together in one of the most segregated cities in postwar America to collectively confront issues such as police brutality and substandard housing, they called themselves the Rainbow Coalition. The First Rainbow Coalition tells the movement’s little-known story through rare archival footage and interviews with former coalition members in the present-day. Post-film discussion with the filmmaker, Ray Santisteban, Young Lords founder, Cha Cha Jimenez, and Black Panther Party leader, Ericka Huggins, to follow. 56m

      Cost: Free -
