The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

Fully Booked
London Review Bookshop

Join us for a screening of The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution (Dogwoof Films), 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.

Directed, produced and written by Stanley Nelson. 113 minutes.
