Liberated Territory (Original screenplay - Black Panther Party] Joseph, Jamal (s - 1989. [1194623]
Self published, New York 1989 - First Draft script for an unproduced film titled "Liberated Territory," written by Jamal Joseph, who was a member of the Black Panther Party (joining when he was 15), specifically the Panther 21, a group of twenty-one members who were arrested in 1969 for the bombing and long-range rifle attack on government buildings in New York City. The trial eventually collapsed and the twenty-one members were acquitted. Notations throughout in holograph pencil (and highlighting) made by Joseph, presumably.Joseph's notable film credits include "30 Days" (2006), "Ali: An American Hero" (2000), and "Bad Blood" (Season 2, Episode 15 of "New York Undercover").Joseph was in attendance, and was a presenter, at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival, where he shot portions of his script, then called "Liberated Territory: A Rite of Passage." The story is largely autobiographical, about youth in the turmoil of the late 1960s, incorporating the assassinations of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy, the antiwar movement, riots, and the black power movement. The story focuses on an ex-Panther member, released from prison, who returns home to New York City to find that drugs and crime have taken over his neighborhood, where once members of the Black Panthers had cleaned up the area.In an interview with Robert Epstein of the Los Angeles Times, Joseph said that the "message is clear . Things are worse. But in the movie an old man reminds the main character, the ex-Panther, that there is work to be done. That there isn't much time. You have to start at some point, at some corner. Liberation will grow from that. It's the same thing in real life, too. The people in the communities have to make the changes. We have to reinvigorate the communities, reenergize them."White self wrappers, noted as First Draft on the front wrapper, dated November 4, 1989, with a credit for screenwriter Joseph. Title page integral with front wrapper. 169 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 168. Mechanically reproduced. Very Good plus overall, now encapsulated in mylar, bound with three gold brads.
