Film: Takeover

Saturday, October 1, 2022

8:30–10 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

The documentary Takeover (Emma Francis-Snyder, 2021, 37 min.) focuses on the day that the Young Lords took over the Bronx’s Lincoln Hospital to demand healthcare for their communities. The film traces the events of July 14, 1970, when fifty activists stormed the hospital, raising the Puerto Rican flag atop the building and declaring it “The People’s Hospital.” The film is followed by a talkback and Q&A with Francis-Snyder and Mickey Melendez, a member of the Young Lords.
