After presenting themselves to the public they would publish the Ten point Program.
They would then do many things for the black community such as. Patrol black neighborhoods, monitor arrests, have breakfast programs and community services often ran by women

As a result of their actions J.Edgar Hoover would target Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and the Black Panther Party as threats which is why he would create the COINTELPRO to counteract these so called threats.
The COINTELPRO would conduct 360 operations of abuse of federal power.Which was illegal harassment,imprisonment, and deaths of many black militants.
