The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was a political organization founded by Bobby Seale and Huey Newton in October 1966.  The party was active in the United States from 1966 until 1982, with international chapters operating in the United Kingdom and Algeria.  

At its inception on October 15, 1966, the Black Panther Party’s core practice was its armed citizens’ patrols to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality.  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.  The party enrolled the most members and made the greatest impact in the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago Seattle, and Philadelphia. 

The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP) is a U.S.-based black nationalist organization founded in Dallas, Texas, in 1989. Despite its name, the NBPP is not an official successor to the Black Panther Party.  Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is illegitimate and they have firmly declared, “There is no new Black Panther Party”.

Victor Hugo Green (November 9, 1892 – 1960) was an African American postal employee from Harlem, New York best known for developing and writing what became known as The Green Book, a travels guide for African Americans in the United States.

In the 1930s, Green began his work by compiling data on stores and motels and gas stations in the New York City area that welcomed black travelers and published his first guide in 1936.  It was first published as The Negro Motorist Green Book and later as The Negro Travelers’ Green Book. The books were published from 1936 to 1966.

Victor Hugo Green reviewed hotels and restaurants that did business with African Americans during the time of Jim Crow Laws and racial segregation in the United States.  During the time the book was published, choices of lodging, restaurants and even gas stations were limited for black people in many places, both in the South and outside it. Green’s guide was so popular that he immediately began to expand its coverage the next year to other US destinations, adding hotel and restaurants as well.

After retiring from the Postal Service, Green continued to work on updating issues of The Green Book. In addition, he developed the related travel agency business he had established in 1947.

Happy Holidays

Thanksgiving Day marks the official start of the Holiday Season, which runs from Thanksgiving Day until New Years Eve.  I (Jaguar Gold) would like to express my warmest wishes during the 2017 Holiday Season.

This time of  year, for many around the globe, will enjoy festivities surrounded by family and friends.  We will give thanks to a higher power of our understanding, make donations to many organizations whom cater to those less fortunate, become gracious in our giving, express humility, enjoy the gifts we will receive, and express gratitude.

So as we celebrate the Holiday Season let us not forget those who smile outwardly, may not be smiling inwardly.  Show love and kindness not only during the Holiday Season, but throughout the year.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS JAGUARGOLD.

On December 1st, 2017 the world celebrated, honored, held events, and stood in solidarity for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

World AIDS Day is held on the 1st of December each year and it is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against AIDS/HIV, show their support for people living with AIDS/HIV and to commemorate people who have died.

World AIDS Day was first conceived in August 1987 by James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter, two public information officers for the Global Programme on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. Bunn and Netter took their idea to Dr. Jonathan Mann, Director of the Global Programme on AIDS (now known as UNAIDS). Dr. Mann liked the concept, approved it, and agreed with the recommendation that the first observance of World AIDS Day should be on 1 December 1988.

Although the world has progressed in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We as a global community still have a long way to go.  Our global communities continue to fight against the stigma, discrimination, treatment, and prevention. Lest we forget.  1448968589172[1]
