Magnificent

I can appreciate the original feel the poetic manner in which it was conducted, the modern connotations and Huey’s message and understanding of America. I’d recommend this to everyone who lives in the real world. We’re dealing today, with yesterday’s issues and problems that were already identified and addressed, but not resolved. Why?

A wonderful performance

The performance is informative and entertaining. I enjoyed every second of it. A good introduction to the man known as, Huey P. Newton.

Very confusing audio and pace.

I think maybe this was a play, and this is just the audio of it. The whole thing was a mess. I was, and am, eager for the content. Problem is, it was just a lot of noise. Still want to hear the content, but would only be listenable if they recorded this just for audio... No theater or audience. Power to the people huey's message stands!
