Tonight, Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at 9 PM, Stanley Nelson’s acclaimed new documentary, “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution,” premieres on PBS’ independent film series INDEPENDENT LENS.

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, 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.

Elaine Brown, who led the Black Panther Party from 1974-1977 and ran for president in 2008,
dismantles Nelson’s documentary ‘The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution.’

"as a former leader of the Party, I assert authority to state that Stanley Nelson ultimately debases the Party, which history will substantiate was, to this very day, the greatest effort for freedom ever made by Africans lost in America. Nelson does this by excising from his film the Party’s ideological foundation and political strategies, despite the wealth of published materials articulating the Party’s goals and ideals, reducing our activities to sensationalist engagements, as snatched from establishment media headlines."

Guess we'll have to watch and decide for ourselves :)
