Black Panther Woman

About This Episode

Black Panther Woman details the journey of Marlene Cummins, a member of the Australian Black Panther Party. Through Marlene’s tale, audiences become privy to the fascinating yet little-known story of the indigenous Australian struggle for equality and how young people in that nation formed a Black Panther Party chapter in the 1970s. Interwoven with her memories of the Party and activism, Marlene also details her own struggle with addiction, the refuge she found in the arts, and her own quest to fight for women’s rights within the Black Panther Party.
