Please join African American Historian, ETHS AP History teacher, and film-maker Kamasi Hill for a viewing of his documentary, "Born in the Struggle."  The film will be shown on Monday, February 13th at 7pm in Trienens Forum.  Discussion with Professor KB Dennis Meade to follow film

Hill’s parents were revolutionists who were involved in the Black Power movement. The film features interviews with a variety of individuals such as Ta-Nehisi Coates and Imani Perry who, like Hill, grew up children of revolutionist parents. Their narratives detailed reflections on their relationships with their parents and their understanding of the historic movement as it unfolded in their homes and public America.  Born in the Struggle also sheds light on the significance of hip-hop in American history and its correlation with the Black Power movement.
