Aroview: An award-winning stageplay about the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, translated into cinema with considerable verve by dir. Spike Lee.

Newton's life as a consciousness-raising activist, and untimely death is effectively portrayed in a solo performance setting (before a live audience), intercut with archival material. Winner of several Obie Awards.
