The 1970 film 'Finally Got the News' documents the climate of resistance and racism that gave rise to the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement, and the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. Through interviews with the members of the movement, footage shot in the auto plants, the film documents their efforts to build an independent black labor organization at an urban scale to resist the exploitation faced by both black and white people in Detroit. Following the film there will be an open discussion with the urban philosopher Andy Merrifield about urban revolutions past, present and future. And an opportunity to continue the discussion in the bar complemented by the sounds of Detroit techno, soul, R'n'B, hip-hop, punk and electro.
