[video] George Jackson: Releasing the Dragon (Preview) – Sun of Nun

I saw this on my Facebook timeline earlier. Beautiful presentation visually, sonically, and lyrically–no qualms here.

Bonus: A tribute mixtape to George Jackson that I found on the same website. Very well put together, I highly recommend giving it a listen.

From the article’s description:

We’ll start our Black August celebration a little early this year by re-posting our 2006 George Jackson FreeMix Radio Mixtape.  This mixtape features DC-area artists and activists reading portions of Jackson’s work and a bunch of good music from folks like Public Enemy, Dead Prez, Blitz, Hasan Salaam, Asheru, Head-Roc, Black United Front, Wise Intelligent, Immortal Technique, Mos Def, Lil’ Wayne, RZA, Ghostface Killah, and many more.  We also borrowed of few minutes from the classic Freedom Archives audio documentary Prisons on Fire: George Jackson, Attica and Black Liberation and a Bay Area television documentary (below) Day of the Gun.
