Diakité, United States human rights lawyer and documentary filmmaker are discussing the movie Judas and the Black Messiah in the light of the Black Panther Party’s history.

What were the Black Panther Party’s goals? Who was Fred Hampton? What are the differences between the Party’s ideology and other American revolutionary movements? Do revolutions necessarily imply the use of violence?
