bpowerlogo1The Black Panther Party , originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, was a revolutionary black nationalist and socialist organization active in the United States from 1966-1982.

On October 15th,1966, the Black Panther Party’s core practice was to armed citizens’ patrols to monitor the behavior of police officers and challenge police brutality in Oakland California.  In 1969, community social programs became a core activity of party members. The Black Panther Party instituted a variety of community social programs, most extensively the Free Breakfast for Children Programs, and community health Clinics.
