In celebration of Black History Month, Mancos Public Library is excited to offer a FREE advance screening of The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution. This film by award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson documents the late 1960s, as change was coming to America. As disputes raged over equality and civil rights — a new revolutionary culture was emerging seeking to drastically transform the system. The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense would, at least for a short time, put itself at the vanguard of that change. A community discussion will follow the screening. For more information about this screening visit www.mancoslibrary.org
The film 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. 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. Featuring Kathleen Cleaver, Jamal Joseph, and dozens of others, alongside a soul-power soundtrack of the music so integral to the Party’s identity, The Black Panthers: Vanguard of The Revolution is an essential history and a vibrant chronicle of this pivotal movement that gave rise to a new revolutionary culture in America.
