Veteran documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson is raising money for the theatrical release of his new film, The Black Panthers: Vanguard Of A Revolution. Nelson’s new film looks at the history of the organization and the conditions that brought about its formation in the ’60’s and how many of those issues are prevalent today. The Black Panther Party became known for their scrutiny of police brutality while using the open-carry laws to bear arms while doing so and their free breakfast programs for school age children. FBI Director J.Edgar Hoover described them as “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country” and created COINTELPRO to successfully dismantle them. Nelson’s film is the first feature length film about the Panthers and to support the Kickstarter campaign for it head over to the project page here.
