    Preservation of the Past: George Jackson at San Quentin

Posted on December 2, 2014 


One of the many things the Freedom Archives did in 2014 is we 
transferred George Jackson/San Quentin to digital video from a 16mm film 
"work print" made in 1971--1972. This extraordinary video contains 
never-before-seen footage from San Quentin of George Jackson. It also 
includes footage of Angela Davis, then in the Marin County Jail, and the 
powerful comments of Georgia Jackson (George and Jonathan Jackson's mother).

This film is a powerful visual complement to our other one-of-a-kind 
audio materials on George Jackson and the San Quentin Six. The 
preservation of such amazing, previously unknown historic materials is 
essential to deepening our understanding of struggle and resistance, and 
affirms our mission.

*Your ongoing support is absolutely essential to our ability to continue 
our work*. Your help makes possible all the educational work we do: the 
internship program, the audio and video documentaries and books, the 
online resources and digital search site, and our outreach efforts from 
our Mission district community out to the nation and the world. Most 
importantly, your help ensures that this resource will be able to serve 
generations to come.
