TCXPI Presents The Black Panther Party

In October of 1966, Dr. Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense.

 

The Black Panther Party practiced militant self-defense of minority communities against the U.S. government, and fought to establish revolutionary socialism through mass organizing and community-based programs.

 

The party was one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority and working-class emancipation — a party whose agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines.
