What We Want, What We Believe - The Black Panther Party Library


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

For the first time on DVD, AK Press is proud to present three acclaimed Newsreel Films on the Black Panther Party: 'Off the Pig'; 'Mayday', and 'Repression'. Formed in 1967, the Newsreel Film collective was dedicated to chronicling and analysing current events. In their time, they produced more than three dozen films throughout the US and abroad. By working directly with the Black Panthers, Newsreel was able to explore realities often ignored by traditional media outlets, while producing documents that the Panthers and other activists could use in organising their own communities. The results speak for themselves and stand as true testimonials to the spirit of community self-defense and political savvy the Panthers are celebrated - and were targeted - for.

Accompanying the Newsreel films is a massive quantity of rare and exclusive culled from Roz Payne's extensive collection of FBI documents, correspondence, and interviews with Panthers and their supporters. It's all here, the government sponsored repression, the trials, exile, triumph and reunion.

These material - over 12 hours on four discs - are crucial to our continuing understanding of the Black Panther Party and their legacy. Any student of American History, Black Studies, Political Science & Law, Film Studies or Civil Rights struggles will find a wealth of valuable material in this DVD.

A portion of the proceeds from this project will go to support Black Panther prisoners through Books Behind Bars, the Jericho Movement and the Human Rights Research Fund. We urge you to seek out these groups and donate your time and resources to their ongoing work.

These are Region 0 discs, designed to be compatible in all regions.
