Abstract:

Despite their militant image, the Panthers worked tirelessly at improving the life chances of the downtrodden regardless of race, gender, creed, or sexual orientation. In order to chronicle the rich history of the Black Panther Party, this anthology examines local Panther activities throughout the United States. The essays shed new light on the Black Panther Party, re-evaluating its legacy in American cultural and political history. Just as important, it gives voice to those unsung Panthers whose valiant efforts have heretofore gone unnoticed, unheard, or been ignored.
