Nuh Washington – Call Me Nuh & Last Statement

Albert 'Nuh' Washington passed away April 28, 2000, at the Regional Medical Unit at Coxsackie Correctional Facility.

Nuh (the Arabic form of Noah) was a committed member of the Black Panther Party and was arrested on August 28, 1971 in San Francisco.

Call Me Nuh is based on an interview done with Nuh Washington in 1988 by Fiona Boneham and Paper Tiger TV and produced and edited by Lisa Rudman and Claude Marks in March, 2000. This was originally shown in Oakland, CA at a tribute to him on March 21, 2000, shortly before his passing. Nuh’s “last statement” was recorded for that same event. Each video runs 10 minutes.


Jail Muntaqim – Voice of Liberation

This 20-minute documentary was edited & produced in November 2002 by Eve Goldberg and Claude Marks, based on an interview done in August 2000 by John O'Reilly and Nina Dibner.

Jalil Abdul Muntaqim (formerly Anthony Bottom) was 19 years old when he was arrested at the same time as Nuh Washington. He is a former member of the Black Panther Party and is one of the longest held political prisoners in the world. This documentary is a unique opportunity to visit and hear Jalil's story.


David Gilbert – A Lifetime of Struggle

This 30-minute video was edited in March 2002 by Claude Marks and Lisa Rudman, and is based on an interview done in July of 1998 at Great Meadows Prison, Comstock, New York by Sam Green and Bill Siegel.

This is a rare opportunity to go behind prison walls for a discussion with David Gilbert, a lifelong anti-imperialist activist and former member of the Weather Underground Organization. David is now serving a life sentence in prison for activities in support of the Black Liberation Movement. He explains why he joined the movement, what led him to go underground, and frankly discusses the strengths and errors of the movement and the WUO.
