The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

Loading...
"The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution is 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. It's an essential history and a vibrant chronicle of this pivotal movement that birthed a new revolutionary culture in America." -- Container.

Black Power -- White Backlash

Loading...
When the radical wing of the civil rights movement began equating redress with rebellion rather than nonviolent protest, "Black power" became the rallying cry. In this program, filmed in 1966, Mike Wallace explores public sentiment during that turbulent period by assessing the attitudes, opinions and reactions on both sides of the color line. Interviews with major figures of the movement discussing black militancy, economic power, fair housing, nonviolence, and the tensions in Cicero, Illinois, the Selma of the North capture the fervor of 1966.
