Details

The Black Panthers 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. Director 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.

Producer Laurens Grant will be doing Q&As with Panther Sultan Ahmad following the 4:00 and 7:00 screenings on Friday, 9/18.  Director Stanley Nelson will be doing Q&As following the 4:00 and 7:00 screenings on Sunday, 9/20.
