Film Review: The Man Who Armed The Panthers

I became enraged as such an important wasn’t discussed as much as others in the war on civil rights. Richard Aoki, a Japanese male who played a pivotal role in the Black Panther Party movement. After he completed his college education he ventured into the world of politics and became a friend to black activists. He started his involvement slowly but surely, eventually providing weapons/firearms for the party members. As I read further into him I stopped upon information on his death as it was ruled a “suicide”. I am very curious as to whether he actually committed suicide. Was this an attempt to silence him even after all those years? Was him providing firearms to the B.P.P for good or bad? We’ll never know but with the information at hand he is indubitably, a hero.
