A Huey P. Newton Story Film Screening
Written by Bwog Staff
Originally born in a small town in Louisiana and later moving with his family to Oakland, California as an infant, Huey P. Newton became the co-founder and leader of the Black Panther Party for over 2 decades. Director Spike Lee and Roger Guenveur Smith collaborated to bring Newton’s thoughts, philosophies, history and flavour to life in A Huey P. Newton Story. A Huey P. Newton Story is the film adaptation of Smith’s Obie Award-winning, off-Broadway solo performance of the same name. It was filmed before a live audience and Spike Lee directs the film with his signature mix of film and archival footage to capture the thoughts of this revolutionary political leader. Free Snacks! Presented by the Undergraduate Human Rights Program.
