    Whitewashing the Black Panthers


    ... Because the murder of Alex Rackley wasn’t an aberration. And while the Feds undoubtedly abused their power in pursuit of the Panthers, their obsession with violent black nationalism wasn’t irrational. Too bad PBS viewers won’t understand why the “Gestapo pigs,” the shock troops of “fascist Amerikkka,” were so interested in disrupting the revolution Huggins, Seale, Cleaver, and Newton tried so desperately to foment ...

    A little of both but more the latter ... Still much work to be done.

    quix·ot·ic: exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical; "or just a sign that more work needs to be done, is up to us to decide"



    Black Panthers Offers an Admiring Look at the Vanguard of the Revolution


    Stanley Nelson’s new documentary about the Black Panther Party is admirably sober, but it nevertheless evokes great urgency and passion. Using archival footage and interviews — with historians, with the Panthers themselves, and with the cops who pursued them — it brings to life a still-contentious historical moment and, without too much insistence or obviousness, artfully draws parallels with today. Watching it, we recognize that the things the Panthers fought against remain a part of our society. Whether that’s a testament to the quixotic nature of their project, or just a sign that more work needs to be done, is up to us to decide ...

    New Black Panthers documentary arrives at ‘fortuitous’ time


    ... The film, which according to its director Stanley Nelson was seven years in the making, portrays the substantial impact the Panthers had on African-American psyches and politics, as well as the fear and loathing they provoked within the top echelons of the federal government.

    Amid the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, the stated goals and aggressive posture of the Panthers feels more relevant than they have in years ...

    50 years later, who are the heirs of the Black Panthers?


    ... Fifty years after their founding, the spirit of the Panthers (if not their exact tactics, as the BLM have adhered to the philosophy of non-violence) lives on in the efforts of a movement for black lives that continues to believe that a new world free of racism and economic injustice, homo- and transphobia and sexism and misogyny is not only possible but can be reached within our lifetime ....

    Former Black Panther Leader On How The Party’s Enduring Spirit Started A Revolution
    Elaine Brown, the only woman to lead the Black Panthers, reflects on the party 50 years after its inception



    It’s been about three decades since Elaine Brown led the Black Panther Party.

    Today, at 73-years-old, Brown is CEO of Oakland And The World Enterprises, a non-profit aimed to help formerly incarcerated people and others facing socioeconomic barriers launch their own for-profit businesses. She has spent nearly two decades supporting the legal appeal of Michael “Little B” Lewis, who was arrested at the age of 13 and tried as an adult for a murder many believe he was wrongly accused of ...

    Without a doubt, its the most powerful scene, emblematic of a western movie or a bank robbery.
