George Lester Jackson

(...)

was an African-American

author.

 

While serving a sentence

for armed robbery in 1961,

Jackson became involved

in revolutionary activity

and co-founded

the Maoist-Marxist

Black Guerrilla Family.

 

In 1970,

he was charged,

along with two other

Soledad Brothers,

with the murder of prison guard

John Vincent Mills

in the aftermath

of a prison fight.

 

The same year,

he published Soledad Brother:

The Prison Letters of George Jackson,

a combination

of autobiography and manifesto

addressed to a black American

audience.

 

The book

would become a best-seller

and earn Jackson personal fame.

 

In 1971,

Jackson took several guards

and two inmates hostage

in a bid to escape

from San Quentin Prison.

 

However,

the incident ended with Jackson

being shot and killed by a guard,

in addition to the deaths of 5 hostages.

and for civil rights,

the three Soledad Brothers,

1970s

 

blaxploitation / blaxploitation pictures

 

 

The 1970s

produced the genre

that would later

come to be known

as 'Blaxploitation'.

 

The film genre

emerged during this decade

as films were made specifically

with an urban black audience

in mind.

 

The term

'Blaxploitation'

emerges from a fusion

of the words black

and exploitation.

 

These movies

were larger-than-life,

action-packed,

and full of funk

and soul music.

 

Known not only

for their exciting nature,

these films also involved

progressive social

and political commentary.

 

From Pam Grier

to Bill Cosby,

check out

who delved into this genre

and what the actors

have been doing

since the '70s ...

On May 2, 1967,

Black Panthers

amassed at the Capitol in Sacramento

brandishing guns to protest a bill

before an Assembly committee

restricting the carrying of arms in public.

 

Self-defense

was a key part of the Panthers' agenda.

 

This was an early action,

a year after their founding.

Bobby Seale

was the co-founder

of the Black Panther Party

for Self Defense

along with Huey P. Newton.

 

After serving for three years

in the US Air Force,

he was court-martialed

and received a bad conduct

discharge.

 

He soon entered

Merritt College

in Oakland, California

where he met Newton.

 

It was in October 1966

when Seale and Newton

created the BPP and wrote

the Ten-Point Program.

Leo Branton Jr.        1922-2013

 

California lawyer

whose moving

closing argument

in a racially and politically

charged murder trial in 1972

helped persuade an all-white jury

to acquit a black communist,

the activist and academic

Angela Davis

 

(...)

 

Mr. Branton,

a black veteran

of World War II

who served

in a segregated Army unit,

represented prominent

black performers,

including Nat King Cole

and Dorothy Dandridge,

argued cases on behalf

of the Black Panthers

and the Communist Party,

and filed numerous cases

alleging police abuse.

 

But the case with which

he was most closely associated

was that of Ms. Davis.

 

(...)

 

Ms. Davis,

a 28-year-old former instructor

at the University of California,

Los Angeles,

was accused of murder,

kidnapping and conspiracy

in the 1970 death of a state judge

who was shot with

one of several weapons

she had bought.

 

The year before,

Ms. Davis had lost

her teaching job

after she expressed support

for the Communist Party.

 

After the charges were filed,

she became a fugitive,

one of the F.B.I.’s

10 most wanted.

 

She said the weapons

had been stolen from her.

 

Her flight

had been an important part

of the prosecution’s case.

 

But Mr. Branton,

who had argued

numerous cases

of police abuse in the 1950s,

urged jurors to view her behavior

in the context of centuries

of slavery, racism and abuse

against blacks.

He Cried Out ‘Black Power,’ Then Left for Africa

Peniel E. Joseph on His Biography of Stokely Carmichael

By FELICIA R. LEE        NYT        MARCH 3, 2014

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/04/books/peniel-e-joseph-on-his-biography-of-stokely-carmichael.html

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

flamboyant

civil rights leader

known to most Americans

as Stokely Carmichael

 

(...)

 

(he) is best remembered

for his use of the phrase

''black power,''

which in the mid-1960's

ignited a white backlash

and alarmed an older generation

of civil rights leaders, including

the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

(...)

 

Though his active participation

in the struggle for civil rights

lasted barely a decade,

he was a charismatic figure

in a turbulent time,

when real violence and rhetoric

escalated on both sides

of the color line.

 

Stokely Carmichael

was inspired to participate

in the civil rights movement

by the bravery

of those blacks and whites

who protested segregated service

with sit-ins at lunch counters

in the South.

 

''When I first heard

about the Negroes sitting in

at lunch counters down South,''

he told Gordon Parks

in Life magazine in 1967,

''I thought they were just

a bunch of publicity hounds.

 

But one night

when I saw

those young kids on TV,

getting back up

on the lunch counter stools

after being knocked off them,

sugar in their eyes,

ketchup in their hair

-- well, something happened to me.

 

Suddenly I was burning.''

 

(...)

 

As a SNCC

[ Student Nonviolent

Coordinating Committee ]

field organizer

in Lowndes County in Alabama,

where blacks were in the majority

but politically powerless,

he helped raise the number

of registered black voters

to 2,600 from a mere 70,

or 300 more than the number

of registered whites.

 

Displeased by the response

of the established parties

to the success

of the registration drive,

he organized the all-black

Lowndes County

Freedom Organization,

which, to fulfill

a state requirement

that all parties have a logo,

took a black panther

as its symbol.

 

The panther was later adopted

by the Black Panther Party.

 

The young Mr. Carmichael

was radicalized by his experiences

working in the segregated South,

where peaceful protesters were beaten,

brutalized and sometimes killed

for seeking the ordinary rights

of citizens.

 

He once recalled watching

from his hotel room

in a little Alabama town

while nonviolent

black demonstrators

were beaten and shocked

with cattle prods by the police.

 

Horrified,

he said that he screamed

and could not stop.

Review: ‘The Black Panthers’

Captures a Militant Movement’s Soul and Swagger

The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

co-founder

of the Black Panther Party

and a leader

of a generation of blacks

in the 1960's

 

(...)

 

Dr. Newton,

who founded

the Black Panther Party

with Bobby Seale,

became one

of the most charismatic symbols

of black anger in the late 1960's.

 

After his conviction in 1967

in the death

of an Oakland police officer,

radicals and many college students

took up the rallying cry ''Free Huey.''

http://www.nytimes.com/1989/08/23/us/
huey-newton-killed-was-a-co-founder-of-black-panthers.html

 

 

 

With the most vivid image of him a poster

- the Black Panther defense minister

poised on a throne-like rattan chair,

a spear in one hand, a rifle in the other -

it would be easy to see Huey Newton

living and dying by the gun.

 

A fuller picture

is more complex.

 

Huey Newton, the son

of a Louisiana sharecropper

who had also been a rebel,

was, in his own words,

''a street kid with an education.''

 

And as hard-won

as his street wisdom had been,

so too had come his book learning.

 

Illiterate

when he graduated

from high school,

Dr. Newton taught

himself to read,

went to college

and attended law school.

 

Nine years ago,

after a decade

as one of the nation's

most charismatic symbols

of black anger,

he earned a Ph.D. degree

in social philosophy

from the University of California

at Santa Cruz.

 

His dissertation was titled:

''War Against the Panthers:

a Study of Repression in America.''

 

But somehow Dr. Newton

never escaped the streets.

 

And after years

in which he battled

drug and alcohol abuse,

after many encounters

with the law,

he was shot to death

early yesterday

at the age of 47 on a street

in Oakland, Calif.

 

(...)

 

Huey Percy Newton,

who was named after

the populist governor

of Louisiana, Huey Long,

was born in New Orleans

on Feb. 17, 1942,

the son of Armelia

and Walter Newton.

 

His father

was a sharecropper

and Baptist minister

who once was

almost lynched

for talking back

to white bosses.

Black Panther Party for Self-Defense - founded 1966

 

 In the late 1960s,

black protesters

show a new militancy,

very different

from the nonviolence

activists originally adopted.

 

In 1966,

the Black Panther Party forms

in Oakland, California.

 

Armed with law books,

breakfast programs, and guns,

the group aggressively monitors

police actions

in the black community,

serves the poor and needy,

publishes a newspaper,

and earns a following.

 

Its founders,

Bobby Seale

and Huey Newton,

present a ten-point program

for improving social

and economic conditions

for African Americans.

 

Soon, their movement spreads

to 25 cities across the nation.

 

As they question

and monitor police actions,

the Panthers'

boldness and militancy

make many in the white

and the law enforcement

communities nervous.

 

Carrying loaded weapons

in public is legal

in California,

where Ronald Reagan

is governor.

 

But the Panthers'

appearance,

fully armed,

makes lawmakers rush

to ban the practice.

 

In 1969,

the F.B.I.

names the group

the number one threat

to the nation's

internal security.

 

Some law enforcement officials

feel this gives them justification

to break the law and destroy

the Panther organization.

 

In Chicago

in December 1969,

two Black Panther Party leaders

are killed in a pre-dawn raid

by police acting on information

supplied by an FBI informant,

William O'Neal.

 

The men,

Fred Hampton and Mark Clark,

are executed

and four of the seven other people

in the apartment are wounded.

 

All surviving Panthers

are charged with assault

and attempted murder.

 

Though the police insist

they shot in self-defense,

a controversy grows

when activists present evidence

that the sleeping Panthers

put up no resistance.

 

Although the police

are never tried,

the charges against

the Panthers are dropped,

and later the families of the dead

win a $1.8 million settlement

from the government.

 

The extent of the FBI's

counterintelligence program,

COINTELPRO,

will be uncovered by activists

in 1971.
