Join us for a screening of "The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution," followed by a Q&A with Prof. June Cross, Producer Laurens Grant, Film Faculty Jamal Joseph and Director Stanley Nelson.
Stanley Nelson's film tells the story of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, which sought to transform a system of racial oppression. It's 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.
Pizza will be served. Free and open to the public, no RSVP/registration required.
This event is part of the Film Fridays Series, which screens first-run documentaries followed by conversations with the filmmakers. The series is sponsored by the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Awards and the Columbia Journalism School Documentary Program.
