Huey P. Newton, the leader and public face of the Black Panther Party, the most vilified and misunderstood of all Civil Rights groups, elaborates on his revolutionary politics in this exclusive jailhouse interview with John Evans. Newton spent four years in prison for the voluntary manslaughter of an Oakland police officer before his conviction was overturned in 1971. Newton discusses his goals as a revolutionary, including decent housing for the poor and disenfranchised and an end to police brutality. Included is footage of various Panther members' homes in the aftermath of police shootouts- the very terrorism that Huey and the Black Panther Party were standing up against.
