Passin' It On

This stirring documentary is the story of the former leader of the '60s urban revolutionaries the Black Panthers and his search for justice. Told through the eyes of Dhoruba Bin Wahad, formerly Richard Moore, a party member who served 19 years in prison before the verdict was overturned on the basis of misconduct by the prosecutor. Originally convicted for allegedly shooting two New York City police officers in 1971, he won his freedom in 1990 after a New York judge found that the FBI had suppressed evidence that could have helped clear him. The Village Voice called this film strong and moving. ~ C. Dwayne Smith
