About the event
The Black August Film Festival will be held on August 19-20, 2023, at the Flintridge Center in Pasadena. The festival will welcome films about social issues around the world. Black August is an annual commemoration and prison-based holiday to remember Black freedom fights and political prisoners and to highlight Black resistance against racial oppression. It takes place during the entire calendar month of August. Black August was initiated by the Black Guerilla Family in San Quentin State Prison in 1979 when a group of incarcerated people came together to commemorate the deaths of brothers Jonathan P. Jackson (d. August 7, 1970) and George L. Jackson (d. August 21, 1971) at San Quentin State Prison.
