First heard about this book on NPR. The author was giving a talk about the influence of the Black Panthers on cultural politics in a America. I became interested and so bought this book to get better informed.
An extremely detailed account about the Black Panther Party, from it's inception. People seem to have the wrong impression regarding the Panther party. In my opinion, it's about correcting Justice and assisting poor African Americans. It's not a group of thugs or gang bangers trying to destroy places and things.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
This was a fascinating read and highly relevant given recent events. Made me think about how the current media portrays BLM. Seems we haven't learned much in the past 50 years.
fascinating read reviewing the panthers' shaping of identity and the various media turns at interpreting this identity.
Fascinating read, considering the relevancy and timeliness of the subject matter. I would highly recommend this book to others.
