Bringing to light the origins of an important national cinema, this book examines Palestinian filmmaking during the long 1970s, and how it sustained a revolution that continues to inspire in a new century.
“Black Power and Palestine” uncovers why so many African Americans—notably Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Muhammad Ali, among others—came to support the Palestinians or felt the need to respond to those who did. This is the first book to explore how conflict in the Middle East shaped the American civil rights movement.
Panelists Jim Clancy, Miko Peled, Ali Abunimah, and Dr. Osamah Khalil address the issues of media representation, American Jewish solidarity, Palestinian activism in the US, Gaza and Jerusalem. Panel is moderated by Palestine Center Committee member and journalist Said Arikat.
The Keynote Lecture of the 2018 Palestine Center Annual Conference is delivered by Dr. Riyad H. Mansour, Ambassador and Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine to the United Nations.
