The Black Panther Party

Program #SEAB001. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on February 02, 1995.

Audio sample:

In the sixties and seventies, the Black Panther Party captured the imagination of millions in the U.S. and around the world. The organization also attracted the rapt attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. J. Edgar Hoover's FBI launched a sustained counterintelligence program to infiltrate, disrupt and destroy the Panthers. The media and popular history have focused on gun-toting Panther militancy and ignored the group's dedication to community organizing and providing much-needed services. Seale's candid eyewitness account of the Panthers' rise and fall makes for a memorable program.

Recorded at MIT.


Bobby Seale

Bobby Seale was the founding chair of the Black Panther Party. He is author of Seize the Time and A Lonely Rage.
