Presented by Indie Lens Pop Up and WNET.  

Join us for a preview screening of The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution by Stanley Nelson before it airs on PBS on February 16, 2016.

A new revolutionary culture emerged in the turbulent 1960s, and the Black Panther Party was at the vanguard. Weaving together a treasure trove of rare footage with the voices of a diverse group of people who were there, Stanley Nelson tells the vibrant story of a pivotal movement that feels timely all over again.

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on the PBS series Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders, and organizations to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics to family and relationships.

Make friends, share stories, and join the conversation. Can't attend in person? Visit Independent Lens on Facebook for information on our online Pop-Up events.
