Summary

The first comprehensive collection of writings by the Black Panther Party founder and revolutionary icon of the Black liberation era, The Huey P. Newton Reader combines now-classic texts ranging in topic from the formation of the Black Panthers, African Americans and armed self-defense, Eldridge Cleaver’s controversial expulsion from the Party, FBI infiltration of civil rights groups, the Vietnam War, and the burgeoning feminist movement with never-before-published writings from the Black Panther Party archives and Newton’s private collection, including articles on President Nixon, prison martyr George Jackson, Pan-Africanism, affirmative action, and the author’s only written account of his political exile in Cuba in the mid-1970s. Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Geronimo Pratt all came to international prominence through Newton’s groundbreaking political activism. Additionally, Newton served as the Party’s chief intellectual engine, conversing with world leaders such as Yasser Arafat, Chinese Premier Chou Enlai, and Mozambique President Samora Moises Machel among others.

Huey P Newton

highly informative, and dispells a lot of inaccuracies when it comes to the legacy of the Black Panther Party, he was not just some thug, he had keen intelect.

A mandatory READ, Dr. Newton takes you to SCHOOL

This Book will be in my library until I earn it.
The narrator had Heuy's voice and cadence
Most memorable moments were when he explained the missteps of the PPP, apologized and talked about their lessons learned,, remedies and new directions going forward.
