DocHouse Thursdays: BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION + Q&A

Q&A with director Stanley Nelson and official photographer of the Black Panther Party, Mohammed Mubarak
Dir: Stanley Nelson
United States / 2015 / 113mins

Change was coming to America and the fault lines could no longer be ignored. Cities were burning, Vietnam was exploding and disputes raged over equality and civil rights. A new revolutionary culture was emerging and it sought to drastically transform the system. The Black Panther Party for Self Defence would, for a short time, put itself at the vanguard of that change.

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.

 

Special Announcement: Official photographer and member of the Black Panther Party, Mohammed Mubarak will be joining Director Stanley Nelson for a Q&A following the screening.
