The Black Panthers is 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. Stanley 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.

“The moment is right for a documentary history of the Panthers.”
– The New York Times
“An essential portrait of a singular radical movement in the American experience.”
– The Baltimore Sun
“The women’s voices are as vital and important as those of their male counterparts, something not often seen in documentaries about times of social change. The fact that these women aren’t tied to their husbands or lovers, but are seen as entities of their own, makes The Black Panthers all the more exceptional.”
