Explorations in Black Leadership

Co-Directed by Phyllis Leffler & Julian Bond

Jackson, George (1941–1971)

Jackson was a prominent Black Panther, a Marxist, and a cofounder of the Black Guerrilla Family. He is best known for being one of the Soledad Brothers, a group of inmates at the California’s Soledad Prison who were charged with the murder of a white prison guard. Angela Davis’s involvement with him and his brother brought greater prominence to his case.
