The Black Panthers Search For Justice

Passin' It On (2006) - 57 minutes
Passin' It On at Amazon.com

A gritty and soulful film, Passin' It On is the story of one man in search of justice who is wronged by the nation with which he is at odds. Part indictment, part redemption tale, this film offers startling insight to the Black Panther Party's role in a social revolution, and the New York Police Department and the FBI's devious targeting of one of the organization's most fervent leaders - Dhoruba Bin Wahad (born Richard Moore).

Emerging from the Bronx ghettoes and a life of petty crime, Dhoruba dived head first into the Black Power movement, serving breakfast to school children with one hand while wielding a gun with the other. Amid a national program of FBI-led oppression against the Panthers, Dhoruba was framed on the flimsy evidence of the wounding and grotesque disfigurement of two police officers and sent to prison. After trails and mistrials, incarceration and eventual acquittal 19 years later, a still-impassioned Dhoruba, his attorneys, and other Panthers finally tell this incredible tale of race, revolution, and redemption.

"A visually compelling film that speaks of a movement, not only a man" (NPR), Passin' It On bristles with poetry and the exhilarating recollections of a true American political prisoner.
