Merritt College, Home of the Black Panthers is a groundbreaking new documentary about the Black Panther Party, focusing on the party's roots and origins at Merritt College in Oakland. This film is a powerful documentary that chronicles the birth of the party during the politically, socially and economically turbulent times of the late 1960's in Oakland. It's a compelling story about social justice and political activism that is told through rare interviews with original, surviving party members and other key players, who were Merritt students at the time, and features vivid, original artwork from the many party publications, as well as rarely seen photos. This new documentary, which also includes exclusive, previously unseen material, is narrated by Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
