A new revolutionary culture was emerging, and at the vanguard was The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. "What is clear from this sober yet electrifying film is that the power of the Panthers was rooted in their insistence - radical then, radical still - that black lives matter." AO Scott, New York Times
