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, one that sought to drastically transform the system. The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense would, for a short time, put itself at the vanguard of that change. Directed, produced and written by Stanley Nelson, The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution premieres on Independent Lens Sunday, February 18, 2018 at 10 p.m. on WXXI World.
