Assata Shakur: Eyes of the Rainbow

This is the first part of Eyes of the Rainbow, the video interview with Assata Shakur filmed in Cuba in 1997. Shakur was a Black political prisoner, freed by the Revolutionary Armed Task Force in a daring prison break in 1979 - she surfaced in Cuba a few years later, where she had lived as a political refugee ever since.

This video has been put online by the Talking Drum Collective - along with the rest of the movie, and several others about Assata. Check it out!
