The Black Panthers

Jan 15, 2018

  The Black Panther party emerged from the tumult of the 1960s, and it gave African-Americans a new voice and a new posture. Filmmaker Stanley Nelson's film about the Panthers is told through the experiences of those who supported and opposed it.

The 1952 film High Noon is a Hollywood classic about a man standing up for what he believes, even as his community abandons him. For the man who wrote the screenplay, it's a political parable about his personal struggles during the Red Scare.
