<p>Who were the Black Panthers and why do their stories matter?&nbsp;One thing is certain&mdash;their radical rhetoric, militant posture, and&nbsp;incendiary activism continue to resonate throughout American&nbsp;culture and identity. In&nbsp;Panther Baby, activist, author, filmmaker,&nbsp;and Oscar nominee Jamal Joseph combines political history with&nbsp;memoir to illustrate the turbulent history of the Party. Join him in&nbsp;conversation with poet of the Black Arts Movement, Sonia Sanchez,&nbsp;as these two vital voices&mdash;which have mined their lives on the&nbsp;frontlines of art and activism&mdash;consider the Black Panther Party.&nbsp;<br />
