Eyes on the Prize: Panel Discussion: True South
Saturday, February 25, 2017
Join us for a panel discussion in honor of the release of True South, with author and veteran documentary filmmaker John Else. Else was series producer and cinematographer of Eyes on the Prize and is currently a professor in the Graduate School of Journalism, UC Berkeley. He is in conversation with Sabaah Foloyan, a Los Angeles–based activist and storyteller whose feature directorial debut, Whose Streets?, premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and explores the Ferguson Uprising; and Sam Pollard, a renowned editor, producer, and director, best known for his feature length documentaries, Slavery By Another Name and August Wilson: The Ground On Which I Stand, and his collaborations with Spike Lee (When The Levees Broke, Two Little Girls). Investigative civil rights journalist and New York Times staff writer Nikole Hannah-Jones moderates this exciting conversation.
Part of Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Eyes on the Prize, presented in partnership with the Ford Foundation. Free admission courtesy of the Ford Foundation, but please RSVP.
