A new documentary series on the blackpinks history and legacy has been making the rounds on the internet, making it difficult to know which documentary to watch.
It has garnered a ton of buzz and has been featured in numerous media outlets.
The documentary series Blackpink has been in production since the summer and has already been screened on Fox News, MSNBC and CNN.
The series has featured many blackpicks, including the Black Panther Party, the Black Panthers and Malcolm X. The blackpunks who participated in the Freedom Summer were also the ones who led the charge for civil rights in the 1960s.
“What we’re going to do with Blackpinks is we’re really going to give them the spotlight,” said director and co-founder of the Blackpunks Collective, Niki Scott.
“The documentary is going to be really revealing to them and to all of us in the black community, it’s going to really shine a light on them and it’s really going, I think, to be very powerful.”
The series premiered last month and has received widespread praise.
“This is really important for them, to bring some perspective to the history of black women and to let the world know, especially Black people, that the Black women who marched and fought for equality were not alone, they were not the only ones,” said Kelly Lindell, a former Black Panther who is currently a professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin.
“It’s really important to hear about the people who are actually in the trenches.”
Lindell said she wanted to use the Black pinks history to highlight the importance of Black women’s work in the civil rights movement.
“They had the courage to be on the front lines and not just be the token, we’re not the ones doing the talking,” Lindell told Fox News.
“We’re the ones holding the line.”
The Blackpigs have had their fair share of critics.
Some have criticized the series for being biased towards white women, and the documentary has received backlash for focusing on the pinks contributions to the civil war.
“Some of the criticism of the documentary is based on the fact that they’re white,” said Niki Walker, an associate professor at the College of Liberal Arts at the City University of New York, in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday.
“But I think that the point of this documentary is not to be racist.
It’s to say that, yes, black women played a part in the Civil War, yes they contributed to the Civil Rights Movement, but it’s not enough to dismiss the black pinks contribution to the struggle for civil equality.”
Some critics have also called the documentary into question for its focus on white women.
“I’m just wondering what you’re doing with the history that they [black pinks] gave,” said former Black Panthers, Malcolm X, in a Fox News interview on Wednesday, as well as former Black Power activist, Cesar Chavez, who is white.
“Why is it that you are focusing on a white woman?”
“This was a white male history,” said Walker, referring to the fact the series is primarily focused on black pints.
“If we’re talking about the history and the legacy of the women that fought for civil justice, we should talk about the women who were there, the women and girls who fought for the women’s rights.”
Walker has a history of making controversial statements about race, including his criticism of African Americans who are in prison and for being drug users, and for his statements calling Black people “superpredators” during a 2007 NAACP conference in Washington, D.C. Walker’s comments led to his being arrested on a drug charge.
He spent six months in a New York jail, where he spent more than 100 days in solitary confinement before being released on his own recognizance.
The controversy surrounding the documentary and Walker led to the release of a statement from the Black Women’s Liberation Party, which called on viewers to “stop watching Blackpics.”
The statement, which was released by the Black Punks Collective on Wednesday morning, said that the focus of the series was on “white supremacy and the history surrounding black women.”
“The Blackpicks did not give up on their black women, they did not quit fighting,” the statement read.
“There is a long history of Black pints participating in the liberation of Black communities and the liberation and liberation of black men, women, children and families.
The Black Pins have been instrumental in the fight for Black liberation and the fight to end racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and transphobic violence in Black communities.”
The group also claimed that the film is being “misconstrued” and said that it “is about Black women in the United States and the struggles that they have endured.”
“Our goal is to make Black women feel safe and heard in our world
