The Black Panther: newspaper of the Black Panther Party

Partial online archive of the Black Panther Party newspaper from between 1968-1973.

Many Panthers were killed or imprisoned but it is important to note that there are many ex-Panthers who continued to organise inside and outside of prison, write and develop their politics after the BPP collapsed, for example Lorenzo Kom'boa Ervin and Russell Maroon Shoatz).

CAN ANYONE HELP ME-find a picture/article in the black panther newspaper??? I have been searching for years! The picture is of ME. It was taken in Chicago, in the housing project around 1968-1972. probably closer to 1970. The picture shows a blond haired,Caucasian little girl-ME around 4 or 5 years old holding a free gallon of milk along with other little children (black & white) getting free milk also. My mother kept this article for a long time, then it was destroyed when my house burnt down. IT WOULD MEAN THE WORLD TO ME IF I COULD SEE THIS ARTICLE AGAIN! if anyone could help I would REALLY REALLY APPRICIATE IT! please email me at [email protected]

hey, that's cool that you were in the paper! Have you checked all of the issues uploaded above?

Very sorry about losing it and your house burning down, that sucks. But hopefully we can track it down, so yeah let us know if you have checked the above issues and that helps narrow down the search

Thank you for your kind words! I have searched ALL the archives on this website and could not find it. I have some additional information about the picture. it was on the FRONT COVER of the Black Panther newspaper. It was taken during the SUMMER for sure. But I don't know if the year was 1969 or 70 or 71 or possibly 72. Like I had said-the picture on the Front Page shows two little girls standing together, one black, one white (ME) and in the background it also shows my blonde haired 9 year old brother holding a free gallon of milk. Now I'm not sure if I am Also holding a gallon of milk And like I said- the picture was taken in the south side of Chicago in the Lathrop Housing Projects where I lived at the time. If anyone could find this FRONT COVER, I would be so very thankful.

Hi,

hi there, have asked around about this on Facebook and someone said there are issues of the newspaper here on Pirate Bay so I would check these: https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/14822702

also would be great to get any of those issues missing from this archive up on libcom so if anyone could help with that it would be much appreciated
