Founded in OAKLAND, CA, the BLACK PANTHER PARTY (BPP) was a BLACK NATIONALIST organization founded in 1966 by BOBBY SEALE and HUEY P. NEWTON!!!
Filmmaker STANLEY NELSON produced the recent Documentary Film, THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION, that sheds a new light on the revolutionary organization The BLACK PANTHERS, and he was at the MSNBC studios in NYC for an appearance on POLITICS NATION With AL SHARPTON.
During their session, Rev. AL SHARPTON and STANLEY NELSON discussed the social impact of the BLACK PANTHERS, the significance of this new documentary film, and so much more.
THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION is 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 goes straight to the source, weaving a treasure trove of rare archival footage with the voices of the people who were there: police, FBI informants, journalists, white supporters and detractors, and Black Panthers who remained loyal to the party and those who left it. Featuring Kathleen Cleaver, Jamal Joseph, and many others,
THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION is an essential history and a vibrant chronicle of this pivotal movement that birthed a new revolutionary culture in America.
