Transcript of The Black Panthers

By: Trenton Kehrmeyer 1966 in Oakland, California 1967 California December 1969 Chicago In March, 1970 the police began to send letters
to many of the members in the Black Panther
Party saying they were kicked out of the group.
Eldridge Cleaver was the one person from the group that they wanted out the most. In October of 1966, in Oakland, California, Huey Newton and Bobby Seale created the Black Panthers for self defense because they didnt think the non-violence way was working. The Panthers practiced self- defense against racist communities and the U.S government.

The party was the first organization in U.S. history to struggle for equal rights. If something was going wrong- the Panthers would handle it in a violent way. On April 25th, 1967 the first Black Panther issue came out and many blacks joined. A few months later the Panthers marched on the California state capital fully armed with guns and weapons, but Bobby Seale and the 30 other Panthers were arrested. After they were arrested, the Black Panthers formed in different states. In 1968, the Black Panthers started to sell Mao's Red Book to university students to get them to buy shotguns and join the group. In December of 1969, two Black Panther leaders were killed in a raid by the police in Chicago. The police named the Black Panthers the number one threat in the U.S. 1970-1973 The Black Panthers Sources "Black Panthers." Encyclopedia Americana. Grolier Online, 2013.

This made Huey very stressed out and mad, and this led Huey to know longer want to be the party leader. Huey then started to do drugs because he was so stressed about the whole situation. In 1989 Huey was shot dead on the streets of Oakland in a drug dispute. Video and Song Black Panther Song Black Panther Video
