Abstract:

On October 30, 1969, Pete O'Neal, a young Black Panther, was arrested for transporting a gun across state lines. O Neal fled the country, and has lived in Tanzania for over 30 years. He is one of the last American exiles from an era when activists considered themselves at war with the US government. O Neal is torn between two worlds. In his adopted country, he has applied the non-violent elements of the Black Panther movement and says he is "continuing to do the work of the Black Panther Party -- but without guns." He serves the African-American community back in the States, sponsoring an international exchange program between underprivileged American teenagers and Tanzanian youths. And he coordinates study-abroad programs for several U.S. universities, bringing college students to Tanzania to work alongside local youth, teaching English, computer skills and HIV/AIDS awareness. Ironically, despite his long legal battle with the U.S. to vindicate his past, he finds that he feels still very much an American. He struggles to feel connected to his adopted country but is homesick for southern barbecue and jazz. He misses his 83-year old mother who visits him in what may be their last reunion. A Panther in Africa sheds new light on the sixties by showing how one man reinterprets his revolutionary history and applies his life lessons in a new country. Can an aging former revolutionary make peace with exile? A co-production of ITVS & P.O.V. with additional funding provided by The New York State Council on the Arts, The Jerome Foundation, and The Brooklyn Arts Council.
