This documentary depicts the Black Panther Party as one of the most prominent cultural and political change-seeking organizations of the 20th century.

USA | 113 minutes | Not rated | DCP| Dir. Stanley Nelson

This documentary showcases the Black Panther Party that influenced America’s cultural and political society in one of the 20th century’s most passionate revolutions to date. Aiming to reform the system, the Black Panther Party sought to dispute equality and civil rights for black people, becoming the vanguard of change.

"If "The Black Panthers" has been designed to leave viewers outraged and energized in equal measure, it succeeds with admirable style. It counts both as essential history and a primer in making sense of how we live now."-Anne Hornaday, Washington Post
