As part of People Power, a film series that explores successful grassroots political movements around the world, the Hammer Museum presents a screening of “Amandla!:  A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony” on June 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Billy Wilder Theater.

This soul-stirring documentary, winner of the Audience Award at Sundance in 2002, uses exclusive interviews and rare film footage to document the vital role of music in the nearly half-century struggle against apartheid in South Africa. The film, which took nine years to make, is a testimony to the power of song and its ability to fuel the struggle for freedom.

The film will be followed with a Q&A session with Shana Redmond, an associate professor of musicology and African-American studies at UCLA.  The Q&A will also be livestreamed after the screening, at approximately 9:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. You can find more information here
