Beginning with his founding of the Black Panther Party in 1966, Huey P. Newton (1942-89) set the political stage for events that would place him and the Panthers at the forefront of the African-American liberation movement for the next twenty years. Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Geronimo Pratt all came to prominence through Newton's groundbreaking political activism.
The first comprehensive collection of writings by the Black Panther Party founder and revolutionary icon of the black liberation era, The Huey P. Newon Reader combines now-classic texts with never-before-published writings from the Black Panther Party archives.
Topics include: the formation of the Black Panthers, African Americans and armed self-defence, prison martyr George Jackson, Eldridge Cleaver's controversial expulson from the Party, FBI infiltration of civil rights groups, the Vietnam War, and the burgeoning feminist movement. Among the new writings that are being published here for the first time on the Balck Panther Party archives and Newton's private collection are articles on: President Nixon, James Baldwin, environmentalism, Pan-Africanism, and affirmative action.
