PBS Short Film Festival | Episode | The First Monument

The First Monument explores the commission of a bust of Mr. Newton. Until 2021, there was not a single official monument erected for the legendary Black Panther Party. This finally changed when Fredrika Newton, the widow of former Minister of Defense Huey Newton, worked with the city of Oakland to commission a bust of Mr. Newton that now stands on the block where he was killed.
