Synopsis

Sculptor Dana King’s hands and activist Fredrika Newton’s memories come together to build a new monument—a bust of Black Panther Party leader Huey P. Newton for the Oakland community that he loved and shaped. As the sculpture takes form, more than just a face is revealed. From the project’s conception through its community unveiling, these two women take us on a journey to reclaim erased histories—personal and collective—and to rededicate them to the future.

FOR LOVE AND LEGACY is as much a love story as it is an activist film.
It explores the nexus of art, race, and legacy through the personal journeys of King and Newton. We see moments of sisterhood, joy, activism, and the love involved with creating a meaningful representation of that which has been left out of the dominant historical narrative. We ultimately experience the powerful relationship between individual and collective loss and the importance of monuments.
