The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

When: Thu., Feb. 4, 7 p.m. 2016

The civil rights movement is one that now spans generations; the names and events in the news and the issues people of color face are still all too familiar. And as we watch groups like Black Lives Matter take on a bigger role in the movement, one can't help but think of those who rose before them in the 1960s. Stanley Nelson's The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, screening tonight as part of RMPBS' Community Cinema, documents the rise of the Black Panther Party and the crucial role they played at a turning point in civil rights and American history. The film will also air on RMPBS in late February. 7 p.m., free, Tim Gill Center for Public Media, 315 E. Costilla St., rmpbs.org/cinema. — Craig Lemley
