I’ve had this link saved for a couple of months and here it is finally.
There’s a documentary out on the life of Richard Aoki, a Japanese-American who became one of the founding members of the Black Panther Party and the only Asian to be in a formal leadership position.
It is rare to hear of collaborative efforts between racial minority groups (especially between Asians and blacks) so I want to make sure this gets spread around, even if it’s just to one person who didn’t know. It is my understanding that there were many Asians involved in the civil rights struggle and fighting on the side of blacks during that time.
Has anyone else gotten to see this? I don’t know how or when we’ll be able to view it.
