Pratibha Parmar’s A Place of Rage is a fierce and loving assessment of the social movements of the 1960s from the vantage point of the 1990s culture wars. The film features interviews with three of the most influential Black feminist intellectuals of our time: Angela Y. Davis, Alice Walker, and June Jordan. The trio asserts the centrality of Black women’s labor and the necessity of intersectional movements for the liberation of all people—past, present, and future. This screening kicks off the UC Berkeley Department of African American Studies’s yearlong celebration of the life and legacy of writer, activist, and longtime UC Berkeley faculty member June Jordan.
