Randomly I selected this book from the shelf of my school's library and my God I know it was in my hands for a reason. The book gives a complete rundown of The Black Panther Party including its members, its principles, the mishaps and legalities,Cointelpro, and most significantly, Huey Newton. I am only sixteen years old and I found the book to be extremely powerful,entertaining, and inspirational. This is a great book to read especially for Black people because IT CORRECTS OUR DISTORTED & SEEMINGLY FORSAKEN HISTORY. Trust me, Huey's name IS NOT in my History book! Plus, no one taught me about the many many positive contributions the Party gave. It's up to us to educate ourselves and this book is a start.
