COINTELPRO 101

The Freedom Archives | Documentary | 56 mins | 2010

Best Documentary | 2011 North Carolina Black Film Festival

COINTELPRO may not be a well-understood acronym but its meaning and continuing impact are absolutely central to understanding the US government’s wars and repression against progressive movements. COINTELPRO is both a formal program of the FBI and a term frequently used to describe a conspiracy among government agencies—local, state, and federal—to destroy movements for self-determination and liberation for Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous struggles.
