Deacons For Defense

I was in BlockBuster when I stumbled across a DVD entitled "Deacons for Defense." It is based on the true story of a group of black men who took up arms to protect their people against the Klan. What is not popularly known is that this group was in fact the founding idea of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense.

The movie is stars Forrest Whittaker and Ossie Davis. This is a must watch for people interested in black history.
