Othello the Panther
directed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj
Set in 1982 Oakland, Othello: The Panther follows the re-interpreted character of Othello and the events that led to the downfall of the Black Panthers. Themes such as race, politics, power and fear, which are highlighted throughout Othello, closely align with the principles the Black Panthers were thought to be founded on and the impression that most of the general public had of the group.
