In 1971, Black Panther leader Dhoruba Bin Wahad (Richard Moore) was sentenced for the shooting of two NYC police officers. In 1990, after serving 19 years in prison, Dhoruba's conviction was overturned and he was released. Utilizing archival news footage, personal accounts and a rich jazz score, PASSIN' IT ON captures the candid testimony of those involved, from Dhoruba's attorney to then-Deputy Police Commissioner, from members of the jury to Dhoruba himself, this is a personal history of one individual's ordeal that speaks to larger issues.
