The Black Panthers were considered "the most dangerous organization in America" by J.Edgar Hoover FBI director in the year that Bryant hijacked a plane from NY to Cuba, 1969.Context is essential when trying to understand anyone or any story they may tell. This is where Anthony Bryant's Hijack falters. The story begins with the hijacking already taking place but the book never explains the motives and climate of the late 1960s nor the paranoia being created by the FBI's Cointelopro against the Black Panther Party. The Black panthers who were in January 1969 starting National Programs like Free Children's Breakfast, Free Clinics, Free Ambulances, Free Food and Clothe Drives and provided Free Pest Control and Elderly Citizen Protection was also well supported by White liberals and Hollywood stars like Jane Fonda Donald Sutherland and Marlon Brando as well as rockstars like MC5, John Lennon, Greatful Dead, Tina Turner and Santana to name a few. There is no mention of US repression towards radical groups in the US like John Sinclair's White Panther Party or Brown Berets or American Indian Movement. Instead Anthony Bryant creates a sense of Hollywood film context that can only exist through cinema. In other words, the book Hijack reads like a treatment for a screenplay. This isn't due to the compelling turn of events but the lack of information that is necessary to better understand Bryant's experience as part of the many consequences that took place during the Cold War. Bryant fails to really emphasize or acknowledge the facts for his imprisonment when he arrived in Cuba, 1969. Bryant fails to see his own stream of errors in robbing the passengers and not realizing this had nothing to do with liberating funds for a "revolution."...
