The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution is a 2015 documentary directed and written by Stanley Nelson Jr.
The Black Panther Party burst onto the scene in the late '60s, standing
up to police brutality and murder, taking out a message
of revolution, drawing forward thousands of Black youth. It was
viciously attacked by the government. The director sets out to tell the
story of the rise and fall of the The Black Panther Party for
Self-Defense by weaving together rare archival footage, interviews
with ex-Panthers and others, and music.

Directed by Maisie Crow: "I grew up in Texas, no stranger to the anti-abortion movement and lived in a culture that glorified virginity and shamed women who embraced their sexuality. As I grew older and really began to question what I had been taught, I found it important to better understand the effects of certain Christian beliefs that permeate the entire Southern landscape...."
