Listen to The African History Network Show, Thursday, April 25th, 8pm-11pm EST with guest, Bobby Seale, Co-Founder of The Black Panther Party For Self Defense. It's one thing to read about history in the history books but it's totally different to hear history directly from a History Maker. #blackpanthers#blackpantherparty#bobbyseale
The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was founded in October of 1966, in Oakland California. The Party advocated Self-Defense of the Black Community against the racist murder and brutality of the Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond and San Francisco Police through armed patrols of police activities. The purpose of the armed patrols was to capture the imagination of the people for broader community electoral purposes as Huey and I observe the police making arrest of black people. The Party also fought to establish greater peoples' empowerment via community control politics, through mass organizing of more than twenty different community based survival programs.
