Brilliant, a must see. Hard hitting journalism that uncovers some ugly truths and shows a very inspiring story.
27 September 2006 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I think this film got some bad ratings because people couldn't really handle the truth...

Possibly the best documentary on the sixties or civil rights I have ever seen.

Well documented, incredible interviews and footage. A real eye opener for a very misrepresented period of American history. many stories of the Panther often leave of in 69. This dose a good job of covering the government attacks on Black Radicals and looks at what actually became of these people and the organization. The interviews and reflections of former members still in prison, some who will soon die there, really closes the story on a powerful note.

I once watched this with a former civil rights activist and current Caribbean community organizer and he was left speechless.
