Black Panthers: Vanguard of the RevolutionBlu-ray
Arising in response to police brutality in Oakland in the mid '60s, the Black Panther Party would polarize a nation and become the focus of law authorities that sought its delegitimization. The rise and fall of the Panthers is chronicled in Stanley Nelson's documentary, which aired on PBS's "Independent Lens," that looks back upon the ideological split between party leaders Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver through the memories of those who lived through it. 120 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH).
