Cat Lady's rating of the film Black Panthers

Fascinating documentary that depicts the revolutionary activism of the black community in the 1960s. Their interest in communism, their understanding of the usage of capitalism as a guise under which systemic oppression and prejudice was delivered is impressive. The documentary also showed the empowement of women as a facet of the Black Panthers and an interesting emphasis on questioning standards of beauty.
