Internationally renowned scholar, professor and writer Angela Davis and 89-year-old grassroots organizer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Yuri Kochiyama spent over a decade conversing intimately about personal histories and influences that shaped them and their overlapping experiences.

MOUNTAINS THAT TAKE WING offers the gift of these two remarkable women’s lives, sharing the pair’s recorded exchanges in 1996 and 2008. The film’s unique format honors the scope and depth of their knowledge on topics ranging from Jim Crow laws and Japanese American internment camps, to Civil Rights, anti-war, women’s and gay liberation movements, to today’s campaigns for political prisoners and prison reform. Intercut with compelling period footage, Davis and Kochiyama’s cogent observations, keen analyses, and steadfast resolve to create a more equitable, humane world offer inspiring lessons in empowerment and community building for current and future generations.

A Community Service Award will be presented to Lauren LaBeaux Craig at the beginning of the event.  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Deborah Smith-Gregory with young activists Jillian Montilla and Kelly Outing will conclude the event.

Featured Artists: Dr. Angela Davis; Yuri Kochiyama, Jillian Montilla, Kelly Outing, Deborah Smith-Gregory
