Join Busboys and Poets Focus-In! Film Series: Cinema for a Conscious Community for screening and discussion of the film The First Rainbow Coalition.
In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form a multi-ethnic coalition with the Young Lords Organization and the Young Patriots. Banding together in one of the most segregated cities in post-war America, the Rainbow Coalition changed the face of 1960s Chicago politics and created an organizing model for future activists and politicians.
