Dans Le Groove x HBCU Culture Presents: Black Panther Society (Power To Our People) The Black Panther Party or the BPP (originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense) was a revolutionary socialist organization founded by Bobby Seale and Huey Newton in October 1966.
The BPP’s core practice was its armed citizens' patrols to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality in Oakland, California. Government oppression initially contributed to the party's growth, as killings and arrests of Panthers increased its support among African Americans and on the broad political left, both of whom valued the Panthers as a powerful force opposed to de facto segregation and the military draft. We were inspired to celebrate this iconic organization with a boost of creativity and Afro-centralism with the phrase “Power To Our People”
