Freedom Archives

The Freedom Archives contains over 10,000 hours of audio and video tapes. These recordings date from the late-60s to the mid-90s and chronicle the progressive history of the Bay Area, the United States, and international solidarity movements. The collection includes weekly news/ poetry/ music programs broadcast on several educational radio stations; in-depth interviews and reports on social and cultural issues; diverse activist voices; original and recorded music, poetry, original sound collages; and an extensive La Raza collection.

These materials constitute a compelling record of forty years of recorded sound, images and cultural diversity. The music/poetry mixes, production techniques, and sound collages represent an innovative contribution to the art of radio and the cultural ambiance of “the 60s” and subsequent decades.

Praise

“COINTELPRO 101 is a riveting recall of history for anyone who wants to be inspired to work toward an end to the U.S. practice of terrorism. Because it was not then; it is happening still in America!”  —Lenore Daniels, Black Commentator

“Strong interviews, rarely seen clips, high quality audio and video production with equally strong narration… But it is the film’s ability to force new confrontation with the political reality of today, as much as with the past, that truly demonstrates its value. The simple point made by Geronimo Pratt is also its strongest; that COINTELPRO made official the illegality of politics, the ‘criminalization of positions’ represented by its targets.”  —Jared Ball, Black Agenda Radio

“Cointelpro 101 is a well made and appealing primer on the history of the U.S. police state. Produced, written, and directed by individuals who have themselves been the target of tactics documented in the film, it has an authenticity and immediacy that pulls the viewer in.” —Ron Jacobs, CounterPunch
