The first letter, dated September 1970, is "A Letter from Black Philadelphians United to All Black People, White People," which calls for Blacks and Whites to work together to end racial oppression. The second letter, dated September 6, 1970, is "The Last Warning," by Michael "Cetewayo" Tabor, a member of the NY Panther 21, addressing Philadelphia Police Commissioner, Frank Rizzo, who had tried to thwart and harass the Plenary Session. With regard to the two speeches, the first speech, entitled "Huey's Message to the Plenary Session" offers an overview of American history with its disenfranchisement of Blacks, who now would improve their own circumstances and demand justice.
