    The Black Panther Party is classified by a majority as a revolutionary black nationalist group, and by others, just a unorganized violent gang because of the use of self defense. There was nothing rebellious or threatening about what the party set out to achieve. Many did not understand the Panthers, because in all honesty, they were very intimidating. The way they Panthers dressed in all black was very horrifying and a tactic in itself to intimidate the police. The whole purpose was to look…

    Within the Black Panther Party, women were treated with the same cold, harsh attitudes that the men were treated. In Assata’s case, her gender did not give her any sort of advantage over her male counterparts.

When Assata first entered the Black Panther Party, she was extremely excited to become a revolutionary. However, as she describes, after her first…

    States in the 1960s, the Black Panther Party developed within a very particular historical moment– one framed by the failures of the Civil Rights Movement, strong anti-imperialist sentiment galvanized by the ongoing war in Vietnam, the frustration and anger felt by disenfranchised black urban communities across the nation, and the upsurge of militant demands for self-determination in the face of pervasive structural racism. Once the Panthers began instituting models of community self-sufficiency…

    The Black Panther Party was a result of the rise in “Black Power”, where contrasting views on Black liberation emerged. Martin Luther King Jr’s methods of non-violence were deemed unrealistic, especially in what was seen as a predominantly white, racist community. Thus, the party adopted Malcolm X’s militant stands and emerged as a successful organisation that fought racism and defended their people. During their time of activity, they established various rules and ideals, and initiated programs…
