Indie Lens Pop-Up + WHUT presents THE BLACK PANTHERS
the turbulent 1960s, change was coming to America and the fault lines
could no longer be ignored—cities were burning, Vietnam was exploding,
and disputes raged over equality and civil rights. A new revolutionary
culture was emerging and it sought to drastically transform the system.
The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense would, for a short time, put
itself at the vanguard of that change. Tony Gittens, founder and director of Filmfest DC; Michi Jones, producer and dancer; and Clayton LeBouef, actor, playwright and DJ, will discuss The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution after a screening of the documentary.
