    In October of 1966 in Oakland, California, Bobby Seale and Huey Newton founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. The primary goal of the organization was for the African-American Community of Oakland to take over the self-governing duties of the city and to provide schools, food, jobs and fair policing for all its citizens.

    The history of this period of time is full of assassinations, plane hijackings and shoot-outs with local police. This presentation revisits this tumultuous period of history and tries to separate the good from the bad and the ugly.
