The Black Panther Party Newspaper: 1967-76

The Black Panther the official organ of the Black Panther Party and was published from 1967 to 1980. The newspaper was most popular from 1968-1972, and during this time sold a hundred thousand copies a week. A total of 537 issues were published during its lifespan.

 

The Panthers initiated community service programs in the black community such as free breakfast for children, free clothing, pre-school classes, and organizing buses for visitors to prisoners. They also were strident defenders of the black community against police violence and advocated armed self-defense.

 

The group was violently attacked by police forces across the country, most famously when Chicago Black Panther leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark were assassinated by police in 1969.

 

Much of their activity was consumed by legal defense of their members in high profile trials of two of their leaders–Huey Newton and Bobby Seale–as well as defenses of chapter members in New York, New Haven, Baltimore, New Orleans and elsewhere.

 

Copies of the newspaper are from our own files, The Wisconsin Historical Society, Freedom Archives, It’s About Time website and the Roz Payne Sixties Archive.
