Watch: The Black Panthers New Documentary Set To Be Released In Theaters (Official Trailer)

by Raheem Karim

There have been movies made in the past about The Black Panther Party but nothing to that goes into depth. The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, is a new feature-length documentary aiming to make the movement more visible for today’s generation. The movement remains misunderstood, and misrepresented. The Black Panther Party served as a political movement for black liberation was a vital force for change and, in some cases, retaliation during the late 20th century. The Black Panther Party is still active today.

Director Stanley Nelson sheds light on the movement from archival footage and new interviews, not shying away from criticism of the Panthers when it’s warranted. In a new trailer for the doc, we see news reel clips, old photographs, and modern conversations that harken back to the days of fire hoses, and police dogs. Watch the film’s first official trailer and check out its screening schedule below.
