(working title)

Stokely Carmichael, aka Kwame Ture, is the flamboyant and notorious civil rights leader whose cry of ”black power” in the mid-1960’s thrilled his followers, inspired the founding of the Black Panther Party and terrified white America.

This documentary has the full support of Stokely’s son Bokar Ture and exclusive access to never before seen personal archive. It explores the life of a charismatic and controversial man largely forgotten by history, whose electrifying moments in the national spotlight made him a revolutionary hero of his time and whose emblematic journey from nonviolent integrationist to advocate of black power still resonates in today’s racially divided America.
