The Black Panther Party (BPP) was a revolutionary black nationalist and socialist organization founded by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale in Oakland, California in 1966. The party’s goals were to end police brutality, improve the lives of African Americans, and achieve self-determination for black people.
The BPP was organized by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale. Newton was a former student at Merritt College in Oakland, California, and Seale was a former member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). The two men were inspired by the Black Power movement and the writings of Malcolm X.
