Bobby Seale - The Black Panther Party (lecture

In the sixties and seventies, the Black Panther Party captured the imagination of millions in the U.S. and around the world with its iconic black power salutes and revolutionary rhetoric. The organization also attracted the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. J. Edgar Hoover's FBI launched a sustained counterintelligence program to infiltrate, disrupt and destroy the Panthers. The media and popular history have focused on gun-toting Panther militancy and ignored the group's dedication to community organizing and providing much-needed social services. Education and information were key aspects of their work.
