Freedom, Bound on the Road—Sharing Lessons from a Legacy of Solidarity
Freedom, Bound is an artistic and historical account of the rich legacy of Black-Palestinian solidarity. The Adalah Justice Project brought an abbreviated exhibit of Freedom, Bound to the New Orleans Film Festival in November 2017. The exhibit demonstrated lessons learned from solidarity both as shared lived reality, and as political choice made time and again throughout history. Visitors were invited to consider the inherent interconnectedness and timeless resonance of shared resistance to oppression. A full-color pamphlet on the exhibit was distributed to film attendees.

In January 2018, the New Orleans Palestine Solidarity Committee advocated for a human rights resolution to be adopted by the New Orleans City Council that would end the city’s complicity in human rights violations around the world. Adalah Justice Project was a proud partner supporting the resolution. The resolution was rescinded. The campaign continues.
