The first feature-length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party, its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people, and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails. Master documentarian Stanley Nelson (Freedom Riders, Tell Them We Are Rising) goes straight to the source, weaving a treasure trove of rare archival footage with the voices of the people who were there.
