Black Panthers for Beginners

Overview

A crowd of onlookers gawked from the sidewalk as four young black men dressed in black leather jackets and berets leaped from a Volkswagen, each of them wielding shotguns with bandoliers strapped across their bodies. The young men surrounded two white police officers who had accosted a black man and had him spread-eagled against a building. The young men did not say a word as the police officers watched them nervously, their eyes fixed on the shotguns. One of the young men held a large law book in his hand... ...

Overview

A crowd of onlookers gawked from the sidewalk as four young black men dressed in black leather jackets and berets leaped from a Volkswagen, each of them wielding shotguns with bandoliers strapped across their bodies. The young men surrounded two white police officers who had accosted a black man and had him spread-eagled against a building. The young men did not say a word as the police officers watched them nervously, their eyes fixed on the shotguns. One of the young men held a large law book in his hand... This was the Black Panther Party in ideal action. The real story - the whole story - was both more and less heroic. So begins Herb Boyd's Black Panthers For Beginners. The late 1960s, when the Panthers captured the imagination of the nation's youth, was a time of revolution. While their furious passage was marked by death, destruction, and government sabotage, the Panthers left an instructive legacy for anyone who dares to challenge the system.

Boyd examines the legacy of the Black Panthers, assessing the tangible and the intangible contributions of these young militants, as well as where they went astray. Contains profiles of Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, David Hilliard and others. Illustrations throughout.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Throughout the text, Herb Boyd takes great care in presenting the facts about the Black Panther Party as objectively as possible. His rendering of this dramatic episode in American history is expertly written and very well organized. Lance Tooks's illustrations are lively and, in many instances, extremely moving.
