The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution (2015)

Director – Stanley Nelson

Notes & scribbles

  • Basically it’s members of the Black Panthers telling the story from the formation of the party and the reactions to it, to the present day.
  • I now know where the Boo Radleys got the title of ‘Free Huey’ from.  It came from chants and posters that demonstrators used to protest about the incarceration of Huey Newton, a founding member of the Black Panthers.
  • I’d obviously heard of the Black Panthers but didn’t really know too much about them.  Good, informative documentary.
