Indie Lens Pop-Up: The First Rainbow Coalition

Tuesday, November 19th, 01:30 PM - 03:30 PM
Rindge Campus

In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form a multi-ethnic coalition with the Young Lords Organization and the Young Patriots. Banding together in one of the most segregated cities in post-war America, the Rainbow Coalition changed the face of 1960s Chicago politics and created an organizing model for future activists and politicians.
