Black Panthers 1968 Book
The infamous Black Panther party made history as the radical African American organization established to promote civil rights and self-defence from the mid-1960s to the 1970s. In 1968, Life magazine sent photographer Howard L. Bingham and writer Gilbert Moore to document and tell the story of this controversial group. Bingham and Moore followed the Panthers for months at numerous rallies in Oakland, Berkeley, and even the United Nations, only to have the story remain unpublished due to a disagreement between Moore and the magazine over the tone of the story. Now, 40 years later, these photographs and the story behind them will finally be told.
