PBS will Air Stanley Nelson's "The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution" Tonight

Director and Producer, Stanley Nelson’s acclaimed new documentary, “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution,” will premiere on PBS’ independent film series INDEPENDENT LENS, Tuesday evening.

This will  be the first feature-length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party and its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people. 

According to Indiewire.com, Nelson aims to paint a complete and accurate account of the revolutionary black nationalist organization, a film that should act as a reminder, as well as an education (especially for the uninitiated, unaware of those whose shoulders they stand on). 

We're excited to see this documentary, especially with the social climate occuring right now.
