3 Black Panthers and the L. S. P. tells the gripping story of three men, former members of the Black Panther Party, known collectively as the Angola 3. The Angola 3 were “politicized” through contact with members of the Black Panther Party while inside prison, and in 1971 formed one of the only recognized prison Panther chapters. Under conditions of segregation, racism, and repression, they organized other prisoners to build a movement for their rights; an astonishing feat given Angola Prison’s history of
repression. The focus of 3 Black Panthers and the L. S. P. is on the hidden facts and cover-ups that have surrounded and clouded their cases since the 1970s. In addition, the movie explores the political climate of the 1960s and 70s that produced “political” prisoners in America, situating the Angola 3 within the political unrest of the Civil Rights and 'Black Power’ movements that emerged within prison walls in America.
Award winning journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal narrates from Pennsylvania's death row, taking the viewer through the history of Angola Prison as it was transformed from a Civil War era slave plantation to a hard labor prison.
