The Huey P Newton Reader

By Newton, Huey P. & Weise, Don & Newton, Fredrika & Hilliard, David & Donald Weise

Publishers Summary:
Beginning with his founding of the Black Panther Party in 1966, Huey Newton set the political stage for events that would place him and the Panthers at the forefront of the African American liberation movement for the next 20 years. The Huey P.

It also features never-before-published writings on pan-Africanism, affirmative action, and Newton’s three years in Cuba as well as previously unpublished material from the Black Panther Party archives and Newton’s private collection.
