A Lost Revolution: The Black Panther Party and Its Destruction - PDF
Posted January 29, 2007. I wrote this paper on the Black Panther Party (BPP) in Summer 1999 for a seminar at the English Department of the University of Heidelberg. It is reproduced here basically unaltered. Note that at the time, my knowledge of the history of the BPP was quite superficial, and many of my judgements were, as philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein would have had it, "an unjustified stab in the dark." I hope it is useful as an introductory text all the same; comments and criticisms are, as always, welcome. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
