          As part of the celebration of the 45th anniversary of Kartemquin Films, in October 2011 South Side Projections, the Pullman State Historic Site, and the Bronzeville/Black Chicagoan Historical Society presented a screening of the documentary The Last Pullman Car (1984, Gordon Quinn & Jerry Blumenthal, 16mm) at the historic Clock Tower Building, part of the original Pullman factory complex. Co-directors Gordon Quinn and Jerry Blumenthal, also co-founders of Kartemquin, were present for discussion with former Pullman workers. In 1981, the United Steelworkers Local 1834 tried in vain to keep the Pullman-Standard Company from shutting down its operations in Pullman, putting several hundred people out of work. Kartemquin Films’ compelling documentary The Last Pullman Car concentrates on the workers' plight as their elected officials, the company, and finally the national union seem deaf to their concerns. Set against the history of the struggle between labor and corporations, but as relevant today as it was then, The Last Pullman Car tells yet another story of American industry abandoning our workers and communities. In 2015, President Barack Obama designated Pullman as a national park. To mark this great news, we are now releasing this video online free for 2 months. The discussion covers the making of the film, the fate of the Pullman neighborhood after the factory closed, and the relevance to continues labor and class disputes, such as the Occupy movement and the Citizens United ruling. It can be found, along with many other extras, on the DVD for The Last Pullman Car: https://www.kartemquin.com/films/the-last-pullman-car This video was shot & edited by Ryan Bedore at Kartemquin.

                      Johanna Fernandez, a Baruch College Professor of History, explains how a recent ruling throwing out Mumia Abu-Jamal's death sentence, has galvanized further efforts to "Occupy the Justice System." Police corruption is rampant throughout urban areas in the United States, and only serves to exacerbate the effect policing practices like racial profiling and stop and frisk, and mass incarceration have on communities of color and working-class people.
