Founded in 1966, The Black Panther Party became one of the most influential and controversial radical political organizations of its time. One of the group's most influential tools was its weekly newspaper, The Black Panther Intercommunal News Service. In this collection Hilliard has pulled together important articles from the periodical, addressing issues such as the Vietnam War, student movements and police brutality. Includes a bonus DVD featuring performances by contemporary hip-hop artists and actual footage from the 1960s and 1970s.

 

First called "The Black Panther Community News Service" and then "The Black Panther Intercommunal News Service (BPINS)," the Black Panther Party's weekly periodical was nationally and internationally distributed. In its heyday, the Party sold several hundred thousand copies per week and the paper was highly regarded for its fearless reportage and analysis as well as its powerful graphics. 

This book includes facsimile reprints from the newspaper, spanning its thirteen years in print, as well as a handful of contextual essays and a bonus DVD.

 

It's a lovely production of an inspiring subject.
