Join KLRU and the Austin Public Library for the Indie Lens Pop-Up screening of the documentary The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution. This free event takes place Tuesday, Feb. 2nd, at 7 p.m. at the Austin Public Library Windsor Park Branch 5833 Westminster Dr., Austin, TX, 78723.
A new revolutionary culture emerged in the turbulent 1960s, and the Black Panther Party was at the vanguard. Weaving together a treasure trove of rare footage with the voices of a diverse group of people who were there, Stanley Nelson tells the vibrant story of a pivotal movement that feels timely all over again.
Formerly known as Community Cinema, the long-running screening series has been renamed Indie Lens Pop-Up to strengthen the bond between the Independent Lens television series and local communities, and bring new energy and new audiences to the in-person events as well as online OVEE events and the broadcasts on KLRU. Over the past decade, screenings of Independent Lens films have brought more than 331,000 participants together at over 5,700 events to discuss issues that impact local communities.
