Abstract:

Brown chronicles her life growing up as a poor black woman in Philadelphia and her later involvement in the militant Black Panther Party organization in California. In 1974, when its leader Huey Newton was arrested and jailed, it was Brown who stepped to the forefront to lead the party after seven years of loyalty. Her political standing in Oakland would cause change. Brown's story, including how she eventually fled the growing chaos with her daughter, is remarkable as one of the civil rights militants who did not acknowledge non-violent protest for change.
