Angela Davis and Terry Hallinan Speak In DeFremery Park

About This Item

KRON-TV newsfilm footage from November 12th 1969 featuring scenes of Angela Davis and Terry Hallinan speaking at a Black Panther Party rally in Oakland's DeFremery Park. Davis reflects on the how the miltary-industrial complex could switch from concentrating efforts on the Vietnam War to repressing political dissent in the homeland. Hallinan complains that the demonstration itself is being organized by white people but nevertheless talks about how America needs to find some additional, "compensatory way" to "make up for the hell that we visited black people with for 200 years in this nation." Ends with brief views of crowds and of a young girl holding a protest sign.
