As the original founder of the Black Panther Party of Self Defense and a political activist for over 50 years, Bobby Seale made American civil rights history and helped pave the way for future generations. From the sixties to now, Seale continues to speak about his involvement with the Black Panthers and is an inspiring advocate for civil rights and justice for all. He was arrested several times thoughout his life, something that never deterred him from advocating his constitutional rights.
Seale’s activism during the Sixties, in particular the famous events of the 1968 Chicago Seven Trial, is being adapted into a feature film directed by Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin and slated for release in the Fall of 2020. The cast will include Tony Winners Frank Langella, Mark Rylance, Alex Sharp, and Eddie Redmayne, as well as Sacha Baron Cohen, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Seth Rogen. Bobby Seale himself will be portrayed by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
