A bold and fascinating graphic novel history of the revolutionary
Black Panther Party.
Founded in Oakland,
California, in 1966, the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was a
radical political organization that stood in defiant contrast to the
mainstream civil rights movement. This gripping illustrated history
explores the impact and significance of the Panthers, from their
social, educational, and healthcare programs that were designed to
uplift the Black community to their battle against police brutality
through citizen patrols and frequent clashes with the FBI, which
targeted the Party from its outset.
Using dramatic comic
book-style retellings and illustrated profiles of key figures, The
Black Panther Party captures the major events, people, and
actions of the party, as well as their cultural and political
influence and enduring legacy.
