Within Our Gates is back! This week on the eve of the election we are here to talk about the 1972 Film Nation Time Directed by William Greaves which documents the National Black Political Convention in Gary. I'm joined by Rezizstans Nwa family member Adam Thomas (@TheHonorableAT) making his podcast debut (!) and we talk about the film and its parallels to today. We touch on the touchy subject of the "Black Political Agenda", figures like Ice Cube and Jesse Jackson and also how we recognize what a Black Film actually is.
