Creating Revolution as they Advance: A Narrative History of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense


Product Description
Creating Revolution as They Advance: A Narrative History of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense examines the historical context that facilitated the demise of the Civil Rights Movement's patience and the ascension of a much bolder and less patient mid-sixties Black Power politic. This work traces the creation of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense in Oakland, California by Huey Percy Newton and Bobby Seale. Intended to be a community service organization, the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense soon found itself as the Vanguard of the entire Sixties Protest scene and the number one target of Federal Bureau of Investigations Director J. Edgar Hoover. Creating Revolution as They Advance not only traces the creation, operation, and demise of the Panthers, but also seeks to paint a more vivid picture of the organization that moves the Black Panther Party legacy away from the stiff non-representative caricature that most remember them as today.
