"Like many Americans growing up in the 1960 and 70s, I knew nothing about the Black Panthers other than the caricature of violence portrayed by the mass media. I was lucky enough to learn more about the Party's programs and philosophies before too long, but there are many who still know only one thing about the Panthers, and about Huey P. Newton, co-founder and leader. Huey Newton's courage, compassion and fierce intellect were all equally influential in the formation and development of the Black Panther organization, and this collection of his writings and speeches provides a sample of the complexity of his thinking and an overview of the relationships and programs the Panthers initiated during those tumultuous times. On the twentieth anniversary of his death, here is an introduction to Newton's historic lifework."
