A gritty and soulful classic film, PASSIN? IT ON is the story of one man in search of justice who is wronged by the nation with which he is at odds. Part indictment, part redemption tale, the film offers startling insight into the role of the Black Panther Party in a social revolution, and the New York Police Department and the FBI?s devious targeting of one of the organization?s most fervent leaders--Dhoruba Bin Wahad (born Richard Moore).Emerging from the Bronx ghettoes and a life of petty crime, Dhoruba dived headfirst into the Black Power movement, serving breakfast to school children with one hand while wielding a gun with the other. Amid a national program of FBI-led appression against the Panthers, Dhoruba was framed on the flimsy evidence of the wounding and grotesque disfigurement of two police officers and sent to prison. After trials and mistrails, incarceration and eventual acquittal 19 years later, a still-impassioned Dhoruba, whis attorneys, and other Panthers finally tell this incredible tale of race, revolution, and redemption. ?A visually compelling film that speaks of a movement, not only a man? (NPR), PASSIN? IT ON bristles with poetry and the exhilarating recollections of a true American political prisoner.moreless
