Progressive Pupil

Proof of concept for the forthcoming multi-platform project, which includes a feature documentary film, travelling photography exhibition and nonfiction book based on the life story of revolutionary icon Kathleen Neal Cleaver and the Eldridge and Kathleen Neal Cleaver Family Archive. The archive contains over 2000 images, scrapbooks and items of correspondence collected by the Neal/Cleaver family over four generations. Ms. Cleaver rose to fame as the Communications Secretary of the Black Panther Party and wife of controversial author/activist Eldridge Cleaver (SOUL ON ICE). The Cleavers lived on the run in Algiers and Paris with their two children. In Algiers, they led a community of exiled Black Power activists in the International Section of the Black Panther Party.
