Liberation, Imagination, and the Black Panther Party: A New Look at the Panthers and Their Legacy
Kathleen Cleaver, George N. Katsiaficas
Routledge, 2001 - Philosophy - 319 pages
Compared with more entrenched organizations like the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) or the NAACP, the 14-year existence of the Black Panther Party seems brief indeed. Yet the BBP gave organizational expression to a tendency in the revolutionary movement that long predated it - the idea that the entire system is corrupt and needs to be reconstructed. Dozens of groups dedicated to revolutionary change appeared in the US in the 1960s, but only the BPP was able to develop a mass following and appeal to a broad constituency.
