The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was founded in October of 1966, in Oakland California. The Party advocated self-defense of the black community against the racist murder and brutality of the Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond and San Francisco Police through armed patrols of police activities. The purpose of the armed patrols was to capture the imagination of the people for broader community electoral purposes as Huey and I observe the police making arrest of black people. The Party also fought to establish greater peoples' empowerment via community control politics, through mass organizing of more than twenty different community based survival programs. The party was one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority and working class emancipation - a party whose political electoral agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines, aligning itself with other people of color organizations including Cesar Chavez's Farm Workers Movement, AIM The American Indian Movement, The Asian Red Guard [I Wor kuen] {Righteous Harmonious Fist}, Puerto Rican The Young Lords Movement and The Peace and Freedom Party, SDS, Young Patriots, etc. The Party's effectiveness as an organizing vehicle lead it to grow quickly starting with me leading an armed delegation of Party members to the California state capitol building on May 2nd 1967 to read Executive Mandate No. 1: protesting the state legislatures passing of the Mulford Act, a new law that was designed to keep the Party from legally patrolling the police in the streets of Oakland CA. Black Panther Party, was an "All Power To All The People!” organization, whether you're black, white, blue, green, yellow, or polka dot. We believed in black unity, but only as a catalyst to help humanize the world. The Black Panther Party worked for self-determination and social justice for all people. The FBI's director J. Edgar Hoover became involved in stopping the Black Panther Party as the party began to gain prominence during 1967 & 68. As COINTELPRO had been established in 1956 to police "political radicals" within the United States, focus and pressure now came onto the Black Panther Party. On December 15, 1968, J. Edgar Hoover declared, "the Black Panther Party, without question, represents the "…greatest threat to the internal security of the country"; he pledged that 1969 would be the last year of the Party's existence. Hoover has also been quoted as saying that it was not the guns that were the greatest threat but the Party's Free Children's Breakfast Program that was the "…greatest threat to the internal security of the United States of America." An interview with former FBI Agent M. Wesley Swearingen, whose book the "FBI Secrets," will highlight the Bureau's COINTEL-PRO program's covert campaign to neutralize, disrupt, and discredit" The Black Panther Party. Under Hoover's reign, the Party suffered immensely, which resulted in many of its members being assassinated or imprisoned. By 1970, Eldridge Cleaver was in exile, key leadership members such as Apprentice Bunchy Carter, John Huggins, and Fred Hampton had been assassinated and Geronimo Pratt, Angela Davis and I were in prison.

"Playing a game of "follow the leader" calls to mind a sled team of dogs. Only the lead dog determines direction and sees a changing view. The hind dogs see only the rear end of the dog that is ahead. As long as they stay in the harness and follow the line, the hind dogs will never see where the sled is heading, or be able to change the direction. The dogs locked in the rear guarantee that the lead dog will arrive first and get the praise and the comfort of knowing that he is still leading. The hind dog only gets the satisfaction of knowing that what he sees everyday will never change. As we shift into an empowerment mode, we are shifting from the perspective of the hind dog to the mind-set of the lead dog who can choose a new way. As we wriggle out of the harness and outside the box, it must always be clear that we will no longer have to follow the lead of the majority society." Claud Anderson PowerNomics <King Shango>
