I never learned much about the Black Panthers growing up. It’s surprising how such a short lived organization changed our culture.
The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was founded in Oakland, California, in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Known later as just the Black Panther Party, members were interested in equality and self-reliance for Black people. What made them controversial was their support of the use of violence for self-defense and to achieve their goals.
The Black Panthers adopted their name from the logo of a Black political party SNCC chair Stokely Carmichael had helped organize in Alabama. They were influenced by Malcolm X, socialist thinkers, and the Black Power movement, which Carmichael became the spokesperson for. Like Black Power leaders, the Panthers advocated for Black people supporting each other through community control of institutions.
The party grew quickly out of the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1960s. In 1967, founder Huey Newton was arrested for the murder of an Oakland police officer. The party invited Carmichael to serve as Honorary Prime Minister, and he, along with Eldridge Cleaver, led the iconic “Free Huey” campaign of 1968 (Huey was convicted of voluntary manslaughter but had his conviction overturned in 1970).
Within a year, the connection between the Panthers and Carmichael’s SNCC soured through differences of opinion over the role of Whites. The Black Panthers also had conflicts with Maulana Karenga’s nationalist group US, possibly due to FBI incitement. A fight between US and the Black Panthers in 1969 left two men dead. The FBI, which blamed the Panthers for racial riots of the time, and other government authorities worked to infiltrate and weaken the party. Numerous Panthers were arrested or forced to flee the country during this time.
After his conviction was overturned in 1970, Huey Newton attempted to refocus the party on community programs, including free breakfasts for children and free medical clinics. But internal conflicts and Newton’s drug problems soon led to Newton and Seale’s departures from the party. The new leadership attempted to continue the community programs, but the party disintegrated by the end of the 1970’s.
