ABOUT THE FILM
The forefather of the Black Power movement and broke dramatic new ground by internationalizing the African American struggle. “Negroes with Guns” is not only an electrifying look at an historically erased leader, but also provides a thought-provoking examination of Black radicalism and resistance and serves as a launching pad for the study of Black liberation philosophies. Insightful interviews with historian Clayborne Carson, biographer Timothy Tyson, Julian Bond, and a first-person account by Mabel Williams, Robert’s wife, bring the story to life.
