The House on Coco Road


Damani Baker

USA/Grenada, 2016


On the fiftieth anniversary of the birth of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, California, you won’t find a more intimate and revealing history of that momentous period than Damani Baker’s The House on Coco Road, a portrait of the filmmaker’s mother, Fanny Haughton. A student and compatriot of Angela Davis, Haughton was a specialist in early childhood education and had her own place in the movement. During the Reagan presidency, when Oakland became overrun with drugs, Haughton made a bold move: She took her own kids, including Damani, to Granada, to live in a truly revolutionary society. Then the United States invaded the island nation. With seeming ease, Baker coaxes out of the eloquent Ms. Haughton the thread that runs from her southern sharecropper ancestors to a life in California and, despite all, a view to utopia. The film’s score is by Meshell Negeocello.—Judy Bloch
