Thursday, March 28, 6pm
Admission: $5 suggested donation (Free for MOCAD Members)
Finally Got the News (1970) is a celebrated documentary exploring the League of Revolutionary Black Workers and their activities throughout Detroit’s auto factories. Centered on individual members of the movement, the film chronicles their efforts to build an independent labor organization, against a forceful historical montage tracing the growth and organization of America’s working class. This screening of Finally Got the News will be introduced by Pat Elifritz, Curator of New Media and Technology at MOCAD with remarks by Jova Lynne, Ford Curatorial Fellow and curator of Useless Utility, currently on view at MOCAD.
