Picture of George Jackson smiling

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.
