My Education: A Portrait of David Hilliard takes viewers to the site of a fatal 1968 gun battle between Black Panther Party activists and the police of Oakland, California. Hilliard, a founding member of the BPP, recalls the shootout from half a century earlier, describing how police followed and surrounded the Panthers, initiating the attack. My Education’s quiet, contemplative mood and luminescent black-and-white images contrast with and trouble Hilliard’s descriptions of violence and eruption, inviting discussion about a fraught moment in American history.
