Synopsis
This program features filmed prison interviews with Huey P. Newton, leader of the Black Panther Party, an organization that FBI director J. Edgar Hoover once labeled as "the greatest internal threat to the security of the United States." Imprisoned in 1967 for the manslaughter of a white police officer in Oakland, Newton was freed in 1971 when a California Court of Appeals overturned his conviction. In these interviews, Newton elaborates on his revolutionary politics and his "Ten Point Plan," a manifesto which called for, among other things, black community self-determination, full employment, decent housing for black people, an end to police brutality, and "an immediate end to all wars of aggression," meaning the Vietnam War. Born in 1942, Newton earned a Ph.D in 1980, and died in 1989 after being shot by a low-level drug dealer. ~ Steve Blackburn, All Movie Guide
