Power to the People

Oct. 1966 Black Panther Party Platform and Program: What We Want, What We Believe. “We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present-day society.We believe in an educational system that will give our people a knowledge of self. If a man does not have knowledge of himself and his position in society and the world, then he has little chance to relate to anything else.” (also see: Huey P. Newton & Ericka Huggins, Insights and Poems.)education
