    Great job on the film Mr. Nelson. I enjoyed it and learned a lot about the impact of the Black Panthers. I can’t wait to see what’s in store next from you and your team.

    Please encourage those who have viewed the film to read Black vs. Empire by Bloom and Martin! It is an excellent, in depth analysis of the party.
