"Off but by the early 1970s FBI counter-intelligence efforts and all of you know, the kind of internal unrest kind of broke the party apart. But yeah, there's more I think to share there but that's kind of like a summary. Okay. That's very that's a that's good summary from the institution. I mean, it's not bad thoughts on some of the good stuff. So the I think a really good book to read goes against like the mainstream as this book called black against Empire and it details the like the true history of a black panther party and some of the turmoil that they went through so people probably don't even know that the Black Panther Party was actually made up of a bunch of different parties and I dead So I don't have the names or right now offhand, but the book does mention all the parties that were going by different names and actually kind of grew into the Black Panther Party name of the book the name of the book jet black against Empire. Yes. Okay. So and then we have the you know, we'll have like the authors and are now that's an arm no free.com. Yeah, so you can see that there but this is a good book to read cuz it'll really detail. How long came to be in which parties came together to form the Black Panther Party as we like know it today and so unlike this the whole this is an excerpt from the book like a little summer. I'm like the civil rights movement that called for full set instant citizenship rights for blacks within the US the Black Panther Party rejected the legitimacy of the US government and positioned itself is kind of a global struggle against American imperialism and the face of intense repression the party flourished becoming the center of a revolutionary movement with powerful allies around the world including China wage. So that very much sound symbolic of what we saw saw in Star Wars Rebels standing against the imperialist forces off India that's going to be really similar there. It's very interesting. It's similar. Definitely what are things that people typically don't know or even change and maybe misconstrue about the Black Panther Party know the thing I never knew was that they started the first program dedicated to feeding underserved children wage, which part the government to start somewhere programs where they get started giving out the free lunches the children, but that wasn't a government initiative that came from the Black Panther Party. Nobody ever mentioned that to me while I was in school. Like I've never heard anything about that. That was crazy me. I didn't know black panthers did any social reform programs? I didn't know that I just yeah, that wasn't one of the things I knew then like I mentioned earlier. There were multiple groups that called themselves the Black Panthers, but they're actually some that weren't even affiliated with the main group. So they would go on to do things that maybe people saw that was you know, kind of like I'm going against the law but that wasn't actually the Black Panthers that was just a group that called himself the Black Panther that was like the anarchists going out and protesting are not protesting the wrong kind of making a right, right? Yeah. We're actually doing the protesting recently for the George Floyd situation. Yeah. It's interesting. Yeah a very similar thing to that and then another thing and I mean conspiracist probably knew this but the federal government they hired people to pose as members to gain insight into the group and cause internal conflict. Well, it's you mentioned a little bit off from your article and article history.com. That's not the article you wrote. All right. I don't know. Okay. Yeah good point and then another thing I never, New Jersey. They were negotiating connections with China as you renewing a founding member of the party met with Tsao and lie as told by an article on radar. So I didn't know that they went over to China and yeah, he was for me connections. I didn't know about that and it was cuz they they both had the common kind of goal of fighting in. Lism off. It was a very bonding thing that at the time us didn't have great relations with China pretty well and I said at the time but we know how it is right now. Yeah. So similar to some of those facts are also shared you can see link on welcome free.com including a link to insider.com which has a really in-depth article kind of things people do not did not know about the Black Panther Party. So they the party opened Liberation schools where children learned black history and political science, they practice penmanship by writing letters to incarcerated members and at its height the Black Panther Party had thousands of members and nearly seventy cities, which I said before which is pretty cool and pretty impressive. Also, what was funny or interesting I thought was like kind of if you ever thought about their uniform like why did they decide the Black Beret and the black jacket on insider.com have an kind of quote from Stanley Nelson director of the Black Panthers Vanguard of the Revolution who is Huey Newton and Bobby seale chose the Panthers look because it was something that everybody had. Their closet they said, you know, every young black man has a black leather jacket or can get one or can borrow one if they can't buy one. He told fresh Air's Terry Gross. Everybody could get a Brett everybody could get some sunglasses and get the panther. Look the uniform was also calculated to be distinct from the suit and tie look favored more traditional civil rights activists. Oh, that's nice, you know a little bit of a tidbit as to why the look of the Black Panthers came to be so that was interesting also in 1969 the Black Panther Party began serving free hot breakfast to kids in Oakland wage listening food from local Grocers and Consulting a nutritionist on healthy and filling recipes the schools and parents praised it but the police and FBI spread rumors that the party was actually using the meals to indoctrinate or even poison kids smart and then in nineteen seventy-five just as the parties breakfast program were being shut down the USDA permanent permanently authorized the Nationwide School breakfast program, which fed more than birth. 14 million children in 20. I don't know if that year is correct. That can't be. Oh, yeah that was before before that. So but nonetheless actually so what's interesting is incentives, suggesting that the Black Panther Party created a free food system similar to what you're saying. They have like they did something and then the government then indoctrinated that action or that wage initiative under their own system. And so if the party was so right like out there then why would why did they adopt the same system? That's interesting. You have no credit. Also the article goes on to talking about they created the first Nationwide testing and screening program for sickle cell anemia. The Panthers established a national screening program training volunteers to walk door-to-door and predominantly black neighborhoods and give free finger stick tests follow-up care for anyone who tested positive was arranged with local hospitals and that's super like off. Super super forward also, they mentioned article mentioned that they help migrant the Black Panther Party help migrant workers organized against Safeway. So in early 1960s Cesar Chavez United Farm Workers Union boycotted Safeway in California for selling grapes picked by non-union workers Safeway coincidentally was one of the few markets to refuse Thursday 8 to the Panthers free breakfast program seizing the opportunity the party began ferrying Shoppers to competing lucky supermarkets free of charge. The boycott was successful enough that at least one Safeway in Oakland forced to close. So that's super super interesting. They also inside our common.

"I have seven the Black Panther party certainly had chauvinist tones and so we tried to change some of the clear gender roles so that women had guns and men cook breakfast for children did we overcome it of course we did as I like to say we can get these brothers from revolutionary haven't so it's such a it's such an interesting point she may I know that makes me laugh too since you may I'm what was the role of women in the black Panthers the woman her head you know every role there was you know in the Panthers so you know Kathleen cleaver lane brown were were leaders and spokespeople elderly women where where where yes you are part of of what was called the rank and file of the Panthers at I think what what's what's usually interesting there was that there were so many women in the party you know it was much more graphic and photogenic to shoot the man in leather jackets with guns and you know so that's what clued what we saw but I think also it's important I understand that you know women have led the civil rights movement not only the Panthers but you know the the what we look at as a traditional civil rights movement the movement of Martin Luther king you know the best move of all of that would warrant you know and a lot of times you know for for whatever reason partially because of the times you know the men were out in front but but women where we're always on the back of the movement here in the country how much of the image of the black Panthers was calculated the look the parade the jackets the guns it was totally calculated and then we talk about that in the family was they were very very media savvy you know they were very smart they had a how to get to the cells you know coverage and that that was part of of what they wanted what was coverage and and they got it I think I think it was part of what they wanted but I also think that one of the things that that that it did especially the rhetoric was a kind of painted them and I am not into a corner because they had to kind of keep the rhetoric goalie you know how do you how do you raise the rhetoric how do you keep it going and I think at least wanted to move away from you know the the guns and and and and and that look that's not what the renewal for in that and so they had to keep something else going out that would get them in the media all the time what are some of the misconceptions that you wanted to correct with this film about the plan that black panther's well there is that there's so many I mean you know one that that they that they were just to the militant group carrying guns to that they were out there on their own we show them that you know in the in the women's movement marches we show the Sherman anti war marches that they were part of that but also that that they were attacked by the by the government by the FBI in particular by J. Edgar Hoover who said they were the most dangerous threat to the internal security of the United States you know and and and co Intel pro was basically enacted to kind of go get the Panthers and and the FBI did what ever it could whatever it took and really destabilized the path of movement one of things I found interesting is that how threatening it became when the Black Panther started to find allies among poorer and lower economic late in economically disadvantaged white people why did the FBI fear that ally ship so much I think you don't care who were feared any changes and he also had a memo where he he said that that one of the big fears with the Panthers was the fear of a black science kind of learning coming out of the Panthers and one of the places that they were most fearful of was a Chicago with Fran Hampton was one young leader of the of the black Panthers in Chicago and then you know what what they feared was a real revolution and that would be a combination of black brown and white people in the Panthers in Chicago we're reaching out to white groups and forming alliances and Hampton had to be destroyed and he was murdered it's it's what do you think the current black lives matter movement could learn for the black Panthers both something that is positive that they should do and perhaps something that they should avoid it should avoid you know if if profits probably little funny way that's the same thing I think that they are you know in many ways we see black lives matter as a leaderless you know and less you're totally involved in the movement you know it would be very hard for you to tell me who the leaders of the black lives matter and and that that makes it a little bit harder to have that much publicity that spokes person out there you know TV shows radio shows like how do I book you know how do I how do I do that let me go a little harder but it also makes it makes the movement a little stronger the captors in many ways were destroyed when their leaders were destroyed when their leaders fall creek the whole movement Falkirk so I I you know I I think it in some ways black lives matter strength might be seen as a kind of weakness but I'm I'm not sure you know I mean I I think whatever they're doing they're doing right now and so it seems to be working now my guess is Stanley Nelson he's a director the black Panthers vanguard of the revolution which you can watch on PBS dot.

"And the fact that this hadn't happened before I'm not certain that we recognize how startling it looked to other Stanley why were they so young I think that you know movements and and revolutions are always made by young people you know there there been no folks revolution I don't think inexcusable you know so if if young people who who can get out of the streets and and and fight for change is young people say you know I've got fifty sixty seventy more years to live and and and I want to change things I think that that's an important important step you know that the I think for for this movement now young people for the first time are getting out there I have a twenty one year old twins in that thirty year old daughter and and and they have what they're all out there every day we were up in Cape Cod and and my twenty one year old twins are weaker we'll go we can half ago said you know that they want to go back to New York they had to get back to New York and get out there and protest and and these are people who weren't that you know involved politically before that but but they are now and I think that they're typical of of people out there of all races I'm curious about the location of where the Black Panther started in Oakland how does that factor into their origins and sort of the ethos of the group I think you know open one California was short for you know it's kind of a combat violent police they actually you know recruited police from from the Deep South in Arkansas and places like that you know to come to California and be political or or believably wireless also in Oakland it is with the city they have a huge black population but it but a huge either segregation and the Panthers came up out of that but you know I I don't think it it it had to come out of Oakland one of things that happened on when the Panthers form is very quickly the movement spread all across the country and then we have people on the phone from Chicago New York and he was soon as I heard about the Panthers I wanted to join I want to start yeah Black Panther chapter in my in my city so it started in Oakland but it quickly spread around the country because the same way that that the the death of George Floyd has spread you know a movement around the country it's unknown on the world I mean I think there were protests in in every single state in the United States I guess the Stanley Nelson we're talking about a film the black Panthers vanguard of the revolution it's incredible viewing in this moment I have to tell you so you know it's interesting you also focus on the women who are part of the black Panthers and how that they were very much a part of the movement even though you they necessarily were up front let's take a listen to another clip from the dock that features historian Clayborne Carson some historical footage of Kathleen cleaver who we heard from earlier and final words from Black Panther party chairwoman Elaine brown one of the ironies of the Black Panther party is that the images like mail with Jack in the gun but the reality is the majority of the rank and file at the end of the sixties I went.

"The morning were less attentive its goal and less inclined to do well and suffer from fatigue I mean there's all sorts of scientific reasons to have a good breakfast in the morning and we just simply took that information at a program was developed several breakfasts to children after my father came home from Vietnam and was discharged from the army and couldn't get work we were going through a very hard time the food was kind of you know that just the everyday necessities were were hard I was embarrassed to go but when you went you know kids are all laughing and then all the sudden the stigma or whatever you thought was a stigma went away and we really got to see that yes this is what the black Panthers are that was in the black Panthers vanguard of the revolution and one more thing to bring it full circle last week's daily Nelson announced two more projects will be developing one is a film about the nineteen seventy one Attica uprising and the other is a docu series about the nineteen twenty one tell Sir race massacre Stanley Nelson welcome to all of it thank you great to be here so why do you think is important for this film in particular this black panther's film to be available for free right now well I mean I think it's important that we understand the history of the protests we understand the history of I protest and actually it was police violence the Panthers started in nineteen sixty six as a group of six young men in Oakland California it started because of the violence of the police in Oakland I mean that's how I started this was nineteen sixty six so what's that you know fifty something years ago and it's still going on he said in an interview recently quote I've always believe the civil rights movement needed Martin Luther king but also need to Malcolm X. and the black Panthers that's where we are today it's more of a Black Panther movement what are some of the similar do you see between the black Panthers and the uprising now well I mean I think now it's a it's an uprising in that includes largely young people the Panthers were very young it's not kind of one organization with one leader fifteen and it it it's about the E. the range of outrage against police violence and you know we just hope that it continues the protest continue and and young people who are publicized St Louis at it's really interesting when you look at the black Panthers ten point program I mean they were remarkably forward thinking and and also so many things they they wanted were remarkably similar similar we want an end to you we want decent housing fit for the shelter of human we want decent education for our people we want free health care for all we want to media and police brutality the one that blew my mind Stanley was the one that says we want people's community control of modern technology talk about how forward thinking that is why do you think they were as innovative as they were in their ideas well I mean I anything in in in in one sense of the problems that we have you know it really in the city are the same as they were then so you know it it just seems that that regret they're very are prophetic but I and they they were looking at the problems that they had been and nothing else has really changed that much for the majority of people you know Evansville rights movement was very successful for I'm not out of some people but for the majority of African Americans they're basically living in the same way that they did in fact six why are these basics still an issue housing education and violence we have a I think a little bit of a priority you know for this country I think you can solve those problems but they've never been in priority and I think that it it takes a will to change and we'll see you know how that plays out as we go forward I think there's there's been a lot a lot of calls people are you know in the streets protesting there there's been a lot of talk about change but we'll see I mean they were already getting the the push back you know that you know file from police departments and others and obviously you know trump and his administration hi good say there is no systemic problem you know it it's it's a bunch of bad apples my guess is Stanley Nelson the name of the film is the black Panthers vanguard of the revolution it's free to stream on PBS dot org until July fourth you mentioned as one of the points the film makes her early as the black Panthers were really really young let's take a listen to a clip here's Kathleen cleaver wife of Eldridge cleaver talking about the use of the movement fourteen eight seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty that's the bulk of the Panthers are teenagers so the fact that we were so young.

"The Black Panthers Vanguard of the Revolution joins me next. Black Panther Black Panthers Black Panther Party. Movement. The Black Panthers were absolutely unique. Black numerically meant that you didn't walk down the street with the same sense of safety. Privileges white person attack dogs fire hoses Tilles job on. You'd be put g. he and this is what we go through on a daily. Black Revolution. Voices within community that we're not going to continue to turn the other cheek. This Emmy and peabody award nominated film the Black Panthers. Vanguard of the revolution documents, another American era of racial unrest that feels especially relevant today. So how does the filmmaker who seems to have passed on his interest in activism to his children feel about what's currently going on. Join now is documentary filmmaker. Stanley Nelson who by the way celebrating a birthday today happy birthday sir. Thank you for being here. Let's. Sure thing, let's talk about the kind of symmetry. It feels like between one, thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight and today, except Richard Nixon is being played by the incumbent president. You had civil unrest in nineteen, sixty eight again was about police brutality. It was about the Vietnam War. It was about all those other factors. How similar and how was it different? I think I think it's very similar in that. People are getting out in the streets and protesting Probably the majority of them are young people. Many of them are being politicized for the first time so i. think that's You know very similar to what was going on. I think that you know we're living in a totally unique environment you know with with the corona virus with forty million people unemployed with a president who is not even trying to speak to the majority of the American people. and. You know what's interesting. Is that you know it feels like Richard Nixon again. He was the outsider that was saying. You know you don't want this chaos white. America, look at this chaos. Look at these angry black people. Aren't you scared? You need to vote for Nixon new silent majority. Whereas in this case, it's not clear that Donald trump can make that kind of a case in the same way because he's already got those kinds of people voting for him. They're already voting for him. The case the other side is GonNa make is. Look at this chaos. Don't want to end it, so it does feel like it's sort of Nixon on on its head. The you know trump is the incumbent, so it's very different. You know anything that happened happened on his watch so George Floyd was killed on his watch. A hundred and ten thousand people died of coronavirus so far on his watch all of these protests happened on his watch, so it's not like. Elect me, and I can come in and make things better We've already seen what what Donald trump can do, and what Donald Trump does. And so I I think it's very different. The Black Panthers you know who arose during this era was it was not just the sense of black pride you know and and black power, and saying demanding to have power within the system, but also saying we're going to watch the police. We're going to keep an eye on police. We're also going to serve breakfast to our kids in our community. We're going to be the Civil Service Organization the Civil Service. Entity that the government is not is. Is there something similar in that that that kind of activism extent today? Do you see it now? In any of the organizations that are that are that are working for civil justice now. One of the things that's so extraordinary about the panther movement, and that so so the same for of what's happening now. Is The panthers started? You know six guys in Oakland California. They started as a result of the police brutality in in. Oakland you know it started as a very local thing they? The police were incredibly a brutal in Oakland and they started out as as a bunch of young guys. In many ways the way this movement started out it started out few people protesting and it's just grown and grown and grown until its worldwide. So I think that you know there are so many so many similarities to the panthers, and where we are now in this day I. Think the main thing though we wanna do is make sure that this thing keeps on going. You know we've politicized a hobart. Young People and we just want them to stay politicized. That's what's important that this is now as is about way more than George Floyd's death. What do you make of the demonization of the black? Panthers given what they were trying to accomplish including feeding children all the way from Ronald Reagan backing the Mulford Act to try to. Take away their ability to bear arms you know to. Megan Kelly and others on Fox. Who demonize them as supposedly the threat to people who wanted to vote? But then all the way on the other side to Black Panther being you know the biggest marvel movie of all time there has been this. Strange twists and turns that the term Black Panthers has gone through. What do you make of that? Well I mean I it's. It's propaganda and it was used in so many ways. Like trump is using propaganda now. Nixon called the the Black Panthers, the greatest internal threat to the security of America and this was at the time we were fighting in Vietnam and you know the panthers were a group of young black people, so it's the same kind of thing where you know it's. It's the look this way. Don't look at that So there's this whole narrative where all we talk about are the looting and and other things that happened and try to lose sight of what's really going on which are the the protests by hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people and There's this narrative to talk about the looting by a very small group of people. It was the same in many ways with the panthers. Yeah I think about this young lady who Trevor Noah reposted her six minute rant where she talked about the broken social contract, and she goes into a situation of. Do you understand why people of the small number of people are looting doing? It's actually pretty extraordinary. If anybody wants to check that out on twitter Stanley, Nelson everyone should watch everything that you make your great Thank you very much and please be sure to catch the The Black Panthers Vanguard of the Revolution in Song, it's going to air on June tenth at eight PM Eastern on PBS in addition to streaming for free on PBS DOT or all the way through July fourth..

"They it says that they believe that all black people should be released from prison because they have not received a fair and impartial trial number nine. We want all black people when brought to trial to be tried in court. Jewelry of their peer group or people from their black communities as defined by the Constitution of the United States. Number ten. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice in peace, and as our major political objective united nations-supervised plebiscite to be held throughout the black colony, in which only black colonial subjects will be allowed to participate for the purpose of determining the will of black people as to their national destiny. They're basically saying we believe that black should. Have the power to separate from the United States from the white establishment and form their own self sufficient and respected self governing body basically right. So. They took these ten this ten point program. They founded a newspaper. Called the Black Panther and they sold that for twenty five cents. It got to be a very popular newspaper. had a really wide circulation, and it wasn't just You know black communities. There were there were all kinds of people reading this a newspaper, and it kind of aside from donations and stuff from various groups. It really kind of funded. The organization was assailed the paper, right and every single issue I. believe featured this ten point program on the inside cover. And quick shot out to the artwork of emory. Douglas If you've ever a saw, this great documentary called the Black Panthers Vanguard of a revolution I watched that, too, and this artwork from this you know artists and graphic designer. Emory Douglas. That was kind of the hallmark of the paper was just gorgeous, stuff, and I think he's one of those his sort of not been lost to history, but you know I had never heard of him before. I think he did it cover for one of the additions of native son. His I I was looking I was like that looks really familiar. Yeah, that's where I saw it before. It's really good stuff, yeah! So Chuck. We've got the ten point plan. And the the. Original headquarters in Oakland and all of a sudden the panthers start spreading like wildfire like their ideas, because the experience was so similar as far as poverty and being harassed and brutalized by police, and just generally being held down by the white establishment, since then experience was so similar throughout all the all the major cities, and even smaller cities in the United States yeah. The black, Panther, party spread pretty quick. And eventually they had something like five thousand members and remember that doesn't sound that much like that many people, but like you said to be a member. You're committed to the black. Panther Party twenty four seven. Yet you quit your job. You had to quit school and your your life was the Black Panther Party. Yeah, so the fact that they had five thousand people doing that around. The country is pretty nuts. They have many more supporters. And the Black Panther newspaper eventually grew to a circulation of about two hundred, fifty thousand. It's amazing. It really is and I guess we'll. We'll get back to their history after this..

"In in these people's free health clinics as well as I mean. They were not the only ones with these. But but I think you have to to draw some parallels there. As just a kind of an ending to the story and I I think that again. This is one of those areas where. I remember one time my grandfather gave me a book called lies. My teachers told me. And, I thought it was a very daring book for my grandfather to give me when I was young. and it was based on the idea that the history. You think you now is not the the truth. There are lots of things that have been filtered especially in this case through the lens of white supremacy, and taught to you as if it is the only truth, and you don't know the whole story, and I think that in that spirit learning more about the Black Panthers Organization was part of what I wanted to do. To do the show the film that I watched in addition to reading, was the Black Panthers Vanguard of the revolution. which if you're interested in learning more about the Black Panther, party I would highly recommend you watch this documentary. There are lots of interviews from some of the key players in the party at the time. to to kind of give you a better understanding of. Not just the organization is an abstract, but the the people who were in it and what they did, and what they were able to accomplish and what their goals were More on an individual personal level I I really highly recommend it. the as the panthers grew and expanded their goals as they were achieving all of these things that. The government was failing to achieve on community levels They got more support from the public at large They began to work with other liberation movements. They began there were international chapters. They spoke out against the Vietnam War It initially was very male movement. It was a very kind of macho, typically male thing, but at its peak, the majority of members would be email, and so even though that was still a struggle at the time there were there were definitely the beginnings of Women's Liberation Within this movement as well females taking some of the more. What you would consider like masculine roles, carrying guns, guarding the Party and men, taking over some more traditionally female roles, feminine roles of like Cooking Breakfast for kids for you definitely saw those beginnings. what would the what would eventually be lead to kind of the fall of the party? in part was largely due to FBI interference J., Edgar Hoover and then eventually Nixon they used something called. They use a counterintelligence program that was called coin. Tell pro and This is something that any of our listeners of color probably already know all about but I. Bet a lot of our white listeners do not know much about and I obviously. Fairly will I in what that is, but I would love a recap for the listeners. So, this counterintelligence program were was basically made up of F.. B. I. Agents Finding ways to dismantle the Black Panther party from the inside because they saw them not necessarily as a violent threat, although they may have said that that it was really a threat to the status quo and a white power. It was a it, they they their ideas were garnering widespread support, and they didn't like that, and so they found a number of ways to vilify the black..

That is wonderful to give to, and so we will shortly we will share all the resources that we have on on that topic. Yes, as well. Yes indeed. Since, we are a movie podcast. Don't know if you've heard listeners. I wanted to speak a little bit to some movies and other types of media. You can consume to help with your ongoing education. So this is a graphic. That's been shared a lot, but in case you haven't seen it, it comes from. We got it from we we. We originally found it from addy Y orig- future guest of the issue. But yes, it was aggregated by Sarah, Sophie Flicker, and Elissa Klein This is a list of films to consume. These are ones on. Films These are ones that are available at the time of this recording streaming on Netflix. I'm thirteenth by Eva Do Vernay which not to brag or anything, but I just re watched last night and side note. I. I went on a little bit of a twitter rant last night. Speaking to how influential media is. To go on twitter at this trying time. Congratulations Thank you very much, but because sometimes I question the career. I've made for myself. I'm like movies. Movies are important why I like movies so much, but then I remember there's. There's a larger discussion for us to be had in the future about how true I mean. We've alluded to it I. Don't think we've ever had like a really really really in depth discussion about it, but how you know the propaganda around cops and the good cop and the bad apple mentality starts with the media. We consume as children along with other things, but it is a large contributing factor that will continue to discuss on the show for sure which it goes to show how? Influential media including film is a lot of people. Make the argument Oh. It's just a movie. You can't take it seriously movies, you know people aren't affected by what they see in the movies or what they see on TV or you know the video games and stuff like that, and of course we've we've. Demonstrated over the course of the years of doing the podcast that is knives. Emphasis! Yes so in watching thirteenth last night I was. Reminded of a very horrifying bit of information, which was that after the simply awful racist abomination of a movie, birth of a nation came out in believe it was nineteen fifteen. There was an enormous resurgence of Klan activity because of that movie because that movie paints the KKK, as heroes, and it portrays black men which are for the most part in that movie, white men in black face, but it paints those characters as violent criminals, and it had such a major impact on the nation that it affected history, and that is the power that movies potentially have so just It is helpful for me to be reminded of that in any case back to this list. Thirteenth by do Rene American son. We have the whole list on our instagram. I people the movie and the series the series wonderful see yesterday when they see us. Another Avo Duvalier film the Hulu Bill. Street could talk and the hate you give One's that are available to rent. Include black power mix tape clemency Fruitvale Shan One of my favorites over I. Am Not your grow just Mercy Soma the Black Panthers Vanguard of the Revolution and then I would also recommend. These are more sort of educational and or movies that. I! I mean I think in general we we recommend these movies from the specific graphic, but we also just recommend. Consuming black art like it is not, it is not just a critical thing to do to have a like a good palate. for your media diet, but it's also just like. Your life is bettered by seeing black art, and I guess if we're being biased American black art it just. It's good shit and you know black artists. We know we talk about are not given the opportunity at the same rate as mediocre random white people to make movies and it just you. If you are looking at your media diet and realize that there is not really any diversity in it. Here's your fucking chance to research to educate yourself and to seek out resources. And you will be better for it, you'll be happier for it is work. That doesn't feel like work because it's just. Like good movies. Good movies and good comedy and good books, and on and on and on we have many recommendations that we will also link you to, and so honestly you know to conclude. Yes, we here at the battle cast would like to say. We think the police should be abolished fuck the police. There has not necessarily been time on our program or a time where we of been. Truly I. I've been in the past week. Alone. Be Been Educated on a wild line. The line is basically you know a very upward line. On on how to articulate these issues, I am definitely not there. I'm not going to attempt to be there right now. The American policing system has been. It's not that it's broken. It's that it was built this. it was built to exclude it was built to oppress a was built to serve the white and the wealthy. We all. We've known this for a long time, but this is the moment where if you are not educated on this topic, get educated on this topic. We're also trying to be more educated on this topic to resources that we have already posted, but I will direct you to right now. On the topic are two studies wine is a book that is currently forty, three, one and from verse books. I'm halfway through it it. It is intense, and it is important as called the end of policing by Alex. s vitale vital. And and it is truly walking you through why? The American policing system is is not serving the people that it says it's serving. It is a system that is not serving our country period. So that is a great resource. Another study that has been really enlightening for me. coming from M P one fifty which is a steady based in Minnesota. That was released last year, but it's a one hundred fifty year performance review of the Minneapolis police. Department that. Wouldn't you know it essentially reaches the same conclusion the police? It's not that they're just ineffective..

"Ask Rick Tidwell to bring it because it already done got brought all right thank you for that. Welcome back to the show it to the West Coast to coast and around the world on the American Forces Radio Network. It's our pleasure to bring in Stanley Nelson Right now. He has a brand new documentary called Vic and it's going to be part of thirty for thirty Of course on ESPN part one will debut at nine pm Eastern on Thursday and then a week later on the sixth It'll be a Thursday at nine pm again for par to Stanley thanks for being on the show. And I it's funny the arc the rise the fall and then the rise again of Michael Vick. It's a fascinating story that I don't think I can compared to anything else right. No no I I think it's a completely unique story. I mean obviously you know there's the rise and fall and rise kind of sports story but you know also so many different components to this story that that You know maybe attracted to me as a storyteller because there are some of these assets to Michael Vick story and and I think a lot of people forget that when he was number one overall he was the first ever African American African American quarterback to be number one overall. And you think about and how just you know fifteen twenty years earlier. Warren Moon had to go to Canada. I I mean it was That was ground breaking in and of itself. Yes yes he was. He was the first African American to go number one Interview Tony Dungy. Who who many people have you know coach from with other people another? He was a quarterback Minnesota. And you know he got drafted But they push him into a a good sense of that. He's GonNa play the Game Against Warren Moon and both of them were not drafted as quarterbacks in into the NFL. And you know that that's the way it was for for years. And so for many African Americans they. They were pushed into being running backs or defensive bags or cevers or anything but but a quarterback and in some ways you know Michael Vick broke that stereotype when he was drafted number one Because he was a very athletic quarterback number one you know at the of course what went down with the The conviction of cruelty to animals and some other very graphic and cruel execution of dogs and such things things I found and I think we all kind of knew this that there are a lot of people especially in America that care more about dogs than than human beings and it's true that you know if a if a guy is on the street begging and then he's holding a puppy he's GonNa get way more cash because people feel sorry for him but they'll feel sorry for the dog so the the the amount of black backlash that he had was a monumental and you could say he deserved it. Well yeah I I think you know in some ways you deserve so much didn't in and anyone basic things is that it's still going on you know there's thousands and thousands of signatures that were collected and not to be an honorary coaching in Provo. So I I think that's one of the issues we tackle. I think that that you look. It's a dogfighting Depending on how you how you come to to look at dogs and how often you look at the criminal justice system and how you look at redemption you know Michael. Michael Vick went to Leavenworth prison for two years almost two years of his life when thank left and so how do you look at that is is there a chance of adaption. Or you feel that that there's no way we can be redeemed from from that Animals especially dogs. That's what I I wanted to ask you about. Because yes he did. Prison time in a federal penitentiary and prison affects everybody differently. Obviously in remember Mike Tyson he he found he got a tattoo and he. You know serve. Reinvented himself Michael. Vick you know. Was this hard time. When did he have it easy? I just wonder what that was like because as you said he came out and he looked no worse for wear no it. There's no no country club for my work and anybody WHO's been in prison up into a prison. You know you know that feeling when you hear that claim of the cell door closing Mike were in impregnable huge. Lost everything he went. He went bankrupt while he is in bankruptcy. So I I think he did. He did time and and did a hard time whether you think he deserved served on on is you know he did You know the kind of work that and I think he had a chance to to really reflect and you know wanted wanted to be as a man and as I think that You know he says in some ways it was. It was a good thing because students helping to like a couple more questions for Stanley Nelson the new. ESPN thirty for thirty documentary. With vic part one is going to be on on Thursday part two on the six You know what's weird is that win Michael Vick came back to the NFL. And I remember going to Raider game at the Coliseum Liam here in Oakland and there were two an hour on the media so I I had access to everything that was going to go on in and beyond the scenes. There were two plus two protesters protesters and whether they're from Peter or whatever and I remember thinking he's either been forgiven or people just don't care anymore or they've forgotten because we kind of got saw. What team is GONNA sign Michael Vick because they'll shut down those games with protests there were two people out there? Yeah I think they're you know when Michael I responding I pay a lot of protesters and time along. I think. Very many people You saw how Michael Lucas was not not only obviously changed on the football field but was changed often. He was racing Sierra. You know knowledge that what he did was terribly walking was terrible Mistake and he raced science but also spoken out to try to prevent cruelty to animals including it could be two dogs and spoke before Congress and other places so I can recognize that. Listen Terry of Mike and a and another chance. There are other people who won't for that but I think one of the things and and that's not why we made some didn't make sense of that people. Say Oh. Let me give Mike. I don't like story in to Taliban in the couple of other films you've done and has a lifelong East Bay resident they Really touched home for me number one Jonestown. The life and death of the Peoples Temple and I remember when I was in the eighth grade and we had the the Mosconi and Mel killings and then the The Jim Jones thing I swear it was when within weeks of each other and I think I tell people I don't say okay. I'm drinking the KOOL aid because I said I remember seeing all the pictures of all those dead bodies and Leo Ryan Getting Shot and so. I don't think people really understand where that Tom comes from. Yeah the one one of the most fascinating trips in James thing actually at a clip of Jerry Jones show off Joe's towns of machine and the stars storing food. And and you know shows you you got the big battle of Kuwait at that that they have. It's just chilling. That's cool and people don't realize that that the signing I mix it with Kuwait. That's the term comes from and you did one called the Black Panthers Vanguard of the revolution and My grandmother and my father both grew up in Oakland and my grandmother worked at the Alameda County courthouse which a few times the the Black Panthers tried to block the workers from getting in and everyone time that kind of separated and let her in one time but you think about the ramifications that had not just You know northern California but worldwide right as well still to this day yeah. I think they don't WanNa do innocent. My Black Panthers. You'd have people take take a look at ah at the penalties from different sides. You know so there's a number of pampers that million of you have a number of people who weren't famous you know just join. We wanted to know like why'd you joy in wide you stay. Why Julie There's some police officers on that. That talk about in the panthers so we wanted to to get kind of a New York. Well rounded look At the panthers anything that that really wanted to tell the big story is a very well rounded. Look at Michael Vick and in the store. And how cool is it. When President Lila puts a metal around your neck? I must've been surreal. It was it was just an incredible incredible day. You know it was at the White House the they they can write all family. Nobody wants and they make it a whole new kind of could be in the white. It's a great moment. That was the twentieth thirteen national humanities medal One more question about the VIC project. And you know you're an experienced. It's filmmaker you have a lot of passion for it and we always think we know the subject matter but when you start doing it you unearth so many things that you didn't know what would be one of maybe the things things that when you are making it you're like wow. I didn't even know that about Michael Vick. I I didn't I didn't know where Michael Head kind of comes on your a place in Newport News. That is mother was a teenager who was born. She was his second child. She was still in high school and she laughs about it. Now you know it was raised in in the project raising in a place. Newport news that they call the highway area of Virginia and whereas so many athletes you been produced in Alan Iverson from in town. Just you know I. It's a place where a lot of the kids look at it. Like no way out is to sports and sports is really big and you know it's important that that part of Michael Vick story is important Because you know he. He says he went off off to college. He said you know. I never wanted to leave and never wanted to leave the practice while it was fun. I mean that sounds crazy but you know that was my home in neutral might send in some ways part of his original thing might maybe that you know he tried to take Too many people. Have you know along on a journey into some of the people too expensive people's community you know so I mean again that that's one of the things we look at in the film you know. What do you owe to your community nudity and your and your friends when you make it Michael? He owed it to take along. We know how good thirty for thirty documentary. He does that and you know. Oh you are in for something good. So how cool is that to be a part of the thirty for thirty cannon. Now it's incredible for me on real sports lover and and I'm I'm always wanted to do the thirty any chance to Mike. He'll jump tag because it's it's not only you know. Football goes through but it does affect some pints of a society and our country. You know it's race. It's the criminal. Justice system is going to tell things the story can wait to see you can see yourself on. ESPN this Thursday.
