Organization
    (1968- )
    Founded in Oakland, California by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale
    Originally known as the Black Panthers for Self-Defense
    Notable Black Panthers include Elaine Brown, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Afeni Shakur, Assata Shakur, Nile Rodgers, George Jackson, Bobby Hutton, Fred Hampton, H. Rap Brown, Bunchy Carter, Eldridge Cleaver, David Hilliard, and Angela Davis
    Basis for the New Black Panthers, which was formed by members of the Nation of Islam
    They wore berets.
    They aligned themselves with Malcolm X.
    Although they respected Martin Luther King, Jr., they obviously didn't agree with his idea of peace before violence.
    Their Ten Point Plan contained many 'we want' demands, including '... end to the robbery by the white man of our Black Community' and '... all black men to be exempt from military service.'
    They are obviously as racist towards whites as the KKK is to blacks.
    Some members were trained to follow white policemen around as they patrolled through black neighborhoods to oversee them doing their job and 'intervene' if need-be.
    Many prominent members of the group left after legal fees began adding up and arguments within the group broke out.
    FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover labeled them 'the single greatest threat to the internal security of the United States.'
    They were created with the intention to further the Civil Rights movement of the late 60's.
    They protested against the Vietnam war.
    Their 'Free Breakfast for Children Program' helped feed thousands of children.
    They were for a drug-free Afro-American community.
    They had a good sense of fashion.
    After leaving the Black Panthers, Eldridge Cleaver continued being an advocate for Civil Rights while taking on a more conservative state-of-mind.
    Black Panthers' Ten Point Plan.
    1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community.
    2. We want full employment for our people.
    3. We want an end to the robbery by the white man of our Black Community.
    4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings.
    5. We want an education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present-day society.
    6. We want all black men to be exempt from military service.
    7. We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of black people.
    8. We want freedom for all black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.
    9. We want all black people when brought to trial to be tried in a court by a jury of their peer group or people from their black communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
    10. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace.
