What really happened during the night Huey P. Newton was murdered within the same West Oakland community that he co-founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense? After 30 years of silence, Tyrone Robinson, the convicted murderer of Newton, exclusively speaks publicly for the first time in a documentary titled, “Three Shots In The Dark.”
Currently, in development, the title is referencing the late Tupac Shakur’s 1998 song, “Changes,” where raps, “it’s time to fight back that’s what Huey said. ‘Two shots in the dark’ now Huey’s dead. The objective of the documentary is to provide answers to many unanswered questions that arose over the years after the death of one of America’s most radical, but beloved leaders of the Black Power Movement, Dr. Huey P. Newton.
Newton’s final years of life are known locally as a man who fell victim to one of the very things he fought to help make his community stronger, drugs. Robinson was a low-level drug dealer who ran the streets to try to make a name for himself to help feed his family. Growing up in the free lunch programs that the Black Panthers started to feed local kids, Robinson personally knew and admired Newton over the years while growing up. Later in life during the height of America’s crack epidemic, Robinson became Newton’s drug supplier that would eventually contribute to his demise as both of their worlds collided by becoming victims of their very own environment.
