Passing it on.. part indictment, part redemption tale, the film offers startling insight into the role of the Black Panther Party in a social revolution, and the NYPD's and  FBI's criminal disruption of one of the organization's most fervent leaders--Dhoruba Bin Wahad . Emerging from the Bronx ghettoes, Dhoruba dived headfirst into the Black Power movement, serving breakfast to school children with one hand while fighting for his rights with the other. Amid a national program of government assassination against the Panthers, Dhoruba was framed on flimsy evidence. 19 years later while sharing a stage with Nelson Mandela,  Dhoruba, his attorneys, and other Panthers finally tell this incredible  suppressed history of the Panther 21 and of triumph against the odds
