A new revolutionary culture was emerging in America and it sought to drastically transform the system.

This documentary is the first to showcase the Black Panther Party's significance to broader American culture. Master documentarian Stanley Nelson goes straight to the source, weaving a treasure of rare archival footage with the voices of people who were there.
