In the 1960s, change was coming to America. Cities were burning, Vietnam was exploding, and disputes raged over women’s rights, gay rights and civil liberties. A new revolutionary culture was emerging, seeking to drastically transform the system. The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense would, for a short time, put itself at the vanguard of that movement. Master documentarian Stanley Nelson goes straight to the source, weaving together rare archival footage of the people who were there: police, FBI informants, journalists, white supporters and detractors, the Black Panthers who remained loyal to the party, and those who left it. An essential history lesson, The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution offers a vibrant, human, living and breathing chronicle of this pivotal movement that birthed a new mindset in America. Exploring concerns over race and policing as pertinent today as it was when the Black Panthers formed over 50-years ago, the film is essential viewing for anyone interested in the rich history that has informed the recent conflicts in Ferguson and Baltimore.
