A New Color: The Art of Being Edythe Boone
Castro TheatreFri, Jul 29, 2016 11:00 AM
Bay Area artist and civil rights activist Edythe “Edy” Boone is a sprightly septuagenarian who seems only to gain energy over the years. Since she was a girl, this celebrated muralist (i.e. the San Francisco Women’s Building) has aspired “to develop a new color no one has seen in life.” Her unflagging drive and determination are captured by Berkeley filmmaker Mo Morris in this film’s every frame. Preceded by Arc of Justice. —Zoe Pollak

Description
Sponsored by Kol Hadash: Northern California Community for Humanistic Judaism.

In 1968 a group of civil rights leaders flew to Israel to study land-based cooperative living and created New Communities, one of the largest Black-owned land trusts in America. This film follows the opposition they faced and the victories they achieved toward economic self-sufficiency in the wake of Jim Crow segregation.  —Zoe Pollak
