The Black Panther Party has been vilified as extreme, violent and anti-white. This presentation will dispel these myths by showing the community organizing tradition of the Panthers, their coalitions with other groups and COINTELPRO – the government program created to destroy the Panthers and the New Left of the 1960s-70s. Special attention will be given to the community programs of the Panthers such as the free breakfast program and free community clinics. Come listen to this exciting history accompanied with a power-point presentation.
