The Black Panthers Speak

by Philip S. Foner (Editor)
£14.99   paperback  Haymarket Books (2014)

The Black Panthers Speak by Philip S. Foner (Editor) From its founding by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale in 1966 to contemporary attempts to censor its history and revise its significance, the Black Panther Pary has aroused fear, hope, misunderstanding, pride, vilification, and government-sponsored repression.
 
This is the first and only collection of the most vital, representative writings of the Party. It fiercely refuted the wanton distortion of its militant, public-spirited history and its fundamental role in the Black liberation movement. Here are Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge Cleaver, David Hilliard, and Fred Hampton; Kathleen Cleaver and other Panther women; teh Party's court battles and acquittals; and its positions on Black separatism, the power structure, the police, violence, and education, as well as songs, poems, and political cartoons. This book explains exactly what the Black Panthers stood for and what issues they confronted, almost all of which remain unresolved today.
