Film Screening “778 Bullets”
Time: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Location: Flex Auditorium, HUB-Robeson Center
As part of the yearlong Talking Together About Guns initiative, free public screening of "778 Bullets" with filmmaker Angela Aguayo. Using archival material, newspaper accounts, witness testimony and experts in the field, “778 Bullets” presents a little-known history of resistance and resilience in the human struggle for self-determination. In November 1970, university, state and local police shot 778 bullets into an off-campus rental house in Carbondale, Illinois. The residence was rented to a handful of university students; some were assumed to be associated with the local Black Panther Party. Unlike other police raids of known Black Panther residences across the country, the Carbondale Panthers shot back.
