    An insider s view of the rise and fall of the Black Panther Party BPP by David Hilliard Hilliard was enthralled by Huey Newton, was underwhelmed by Bobby Seale, and found Eldridge Cleaver to be divisive The book could have been improved by providingdates for the seminal events in the Party s history, andabout the party s platform and programs The first hand recounting of the police FBI efforts to eliminate the BPP was an eye opener although less brutal than the Fred Hampton Stor An insider s view of the rise and fall of the Black Panther Party BPP by David Hilliard Hilliard was enthralled by Huey Newton, was underwhelmed by Bobby Seale, and found Eldridge Cleaver to be divisive The book could have been improved by providingdates for the seminal events in the Party s history, andabout the party s platform and programs The first hand recounting of the police FBI efforts to eliminate the BPP was an eye opener although less brutal than the Fred Hampton Story, and to some extent, was paralleled by deadly fights with other black power or black gang leaders The BPP had much internal discord around working with other organizations with similar goals, such as the SNCC What sets this book apart from the many others that I have read was the drug use, which probably wasresponsible for the destruction of the BPP than anything else as paranoia rampaged A very sad ending to a wonderful vision of empowerment, education, and self determination

    This account of the rise and fall of the Black Panther Party iscomplete,honest, andmale chauvinist than Elaine Brown s I highly recommend that anyone who wants to get some insight into the workings, feelings, and processes of the top tiers of the Party should read both Brown and Hilliard s accounts The pictures they paint of the Party, of Huey, and of events differ as greatly as their perspectives differ, and the interpolation that becomes possible is illuminating.

    A very good memoir about a life in the Black Panther party.

    Hilliard served as chief of staff of the Black Panther Party During the years Huey Newton was in jail and Eldridge Cleaver was in exile he effectively ran the party Once he was imprisoned in later years for his role in the Oakland shooting that led to Cleaver s exile, Newton became increasingly paranoid and ousted Hilliard from the the Party The latter part of the book is about his 15 plus years from 74 until just a year before Newton s death, detailing his personal struggle with crack and Hilliard served as chief of staff of the Black Panther Party During the years Huey Newton was in jail and Eldridge Cleaver was in exile he effectively ran the party Once he was imprisoned in later years for his role in the Oakland shooting that led to Cleaver s exile, Newton became increasingly paranoid and ousted Hilliard from the the Party The latter part of the book is about his 15 plus years from 74 until just a year before Newton s death, detailing his personal struggle with crack and alcohol Ultimately, when Huey Newton was gunned down in Oakland by a crack dealer reputedly sick of Newton demanding free drugs Hilliard himself had been clean and sober only seven months

    David Hilliard s autobiography of the Black Panther Party is indeed compelling and fascinating I was surprised to learn how much of today s organizing principles were developed by the Panthers, and how far reaching their socials programs were, which fed, housed and clothed people across the country Through all this, Hilliard shares his growth as a speaker and leader, his personal struggle with addiction, and what it was like to stand in the shadow of the charismatic Huey Newton.

    I ve read several books about the black panthers, but this one isdefinitely my favorite You get to hear the story of the party sfounding years through the eyes of someone who was not a major starbut was definitely integral to the party s functioning In addition, this is just a great memoir someone depicting therelife, glory and warts, as plain as possible.
