A film by Clairmont M. Chung
This film covers the life of world renowned, historian, author, and activist, Dr. Walter Rodney who was assassinated on Friday, June 13, 1980, at the age of 38, in his native Guyana.
It is the story of a man who dedicated his life, and ultimately, gave his life in the struggle for equal rights and justice. He did so through his considerable intellectual gifts and actual grassroots involvement everywhere he went.
A round table discussion with Clairmont Chung, Drs. Edward Alpers, and Robert Hill will follow.
