Revolution ’67 by Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno
The Los Angeles Poverty Department (LAPD) is a performance group and organizing center in Skid Row. The LAPD seeks to use film as a means to connect community members with advocates, social service professionals, and the positive forces of art. Revolution ’67 will be screened as part of LAPD’s focus on Black History Month, and will give the Skid Row community a chance to discuss the “race riots” of the 1960’s. Civil rights activist General Dogon will speak after the screening.
Revolution ’67 Conversation Starter: How much progress has been made in the years since the riots of the 60’s? Has there been an improvement in how the United States treats its homeless, its impoverished, its disenfranchised? How can a more welcoming stance towards marginalized persons be adopted? Do riots achieve their intended ends? What is the most productive form of civil disobedience?
