Regra- from @allmyshitispositive - The #real #blackpanther #happybornday #hueypnewton --- HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO former Black Panther party leader Dr. Huey Percy Newton (February 17, 1942 – August 22, 1989) was an African-American political activist and revolutionary who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. He continued to pursue an education, eventually earning a Ph.D. in social philosophy. In 1989 he was shot and killed in Oakland, California.
The Party achieved national and international renown through their deep involvement in the Black Power movement and the politics of the 1960s and 1970s. The Party's political goals, including better housing, jobs, and education for African Americans, were documented in their Ten-Point Program, a set of guidelines to the Black Panther Party's ideals and ways of operation. The group believed that violence—or the threat of it—might be needed to bring about social change. - #blackpantherparty #realhistory #fightingoppression #education #educated #realhistory ##corruption #read #knowyourroots
