The Black Rock:the African American Experience at Alcatraz

For Black History Month here is a clip from "The Black Rock" a 2009 film that explores the largely undocumented history of the African American prisoner experience on Alcatraz. Filmmaker Kevin Epps has shifted his documentary lens from previous subjects like life in Hunters Point, and the Bay’s Hip Hop underground, to life in SF’s notorious offshore federal lock up.
