Prelude to Revolution: Huey Newton in Jail

Loading...
Huey P. Newton was a co-founder of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, an organization FBI director J. Edgar Hoover once called 'the greatest internal threat to the security of the United States.' Newton spent four years in prison for the voluntary manslaughter of an Oakland police officer before his conviction was overturned in 1971. Newton discusses his goals as a revolutionary, including self-determination for African-Americans, full employment, decent housing for the poor and disenfranchised, an end to police brutality, and an end to the Vietnam War.

A documentary of historical footage interspersed with interviews of retired Oakland police officers who battled anti-war demonstrators and Black Panthers in the 1960s. Portraying a generation that lived through the Depression and World War II before they became policemen, this film covers the Vietnam War protests that spilled from Berkeley into Oakland, the racial integration of the Oakland Police Department, and the ambivalence of black officers during the department's war with the Black Panthers.
