In 1969, a young Black Panther named Pete O'Neal was arrested for transporting a gun across state lines. O'Neal fled the country, and has lived in Tanzania since. He is one of the last American exiles from an era when activists considered themselves at war with the US government.
O'Neal is torn between two worlds. In his adopted country, he has applied the non-violent elements of the Black Panther movement. He serves the African American community by sponsoring an international exchange program between underprivileged American teenagers and Tanzanian youths, and coordinates study-abroad programs for several US universities, bringing college students to Tanzania to work alongside local youth teaching English, computer skills, and HIV/AIDS awareness.
Despite O'Neal's long legal battle with the US for vindication, he still considers himself very much American, struggling to feel connected to his adopted country and homesick for southern barbecue, jazz, and his eighty-three-year-old mother, who comes to visit for what may be their last reunion. A Panther in Africa sheds new light on the '60s by showing how one man reinterprets his revolutionary history and applies his life lessons in a new country.
