Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale established The Black Panther Party (BPP) in Oakland, California in 1966. The organization––originally named the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense––first established neighborhood patrols and protected residents from police brutality. However, the black revolutionary party ultimately evolved into a Marxist revolutionary group that fought for African American weapon rights, exemption from “white American” sanctions, and financial compensation for years of racial exploitation. In addition to fighting for political and economic equality, the BPP became well known for providing access to medical clinics and free breakfasts for children.
