THE ISSUE OF MR. O’DELL

By Rami Katz

A documentary which examines the lifelong work of a pioneering civil rights activist and organizer, Jack O’Dell, who was at one time a close colleague of Martin Luther King, Jr. A former member of the Communist Party, O’Dell was followed by the FBI, labelled the number-five Communist in America by President Kennedy, and was eventually forced out of King’s organization. Now 94 years old, O’Dell eloquently speaks to issues concerning the civil rights struggle, both with respect to his historical involvement and to its contemporary incarnation under the stewardship of groups like Black Lives Matter. He continues to passionately address the problems of systemic racism and inequality in America.
