From an idea in 1989 to a stage play in 1996 to a film in 2002, A Huey P. Newton Story has been a labour of love and patience for Roger Guenveur Smith. Along the way as a stage play, it received numerous awards including two Drama Desk nominations, the Helen Hayes Award, two Obie Awards, two AUDELCO awards, and three NAACP Awards.

Now as a film it has been honoured around the world and has recently received two NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special and Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special.

A Huey P. Newton Story was produced by Luna Ray Films and is an original production of BLACK STARZ! in association with PBS and the African Heritage Network.
