The Black Panther Party was one of the most important organizations in the history of the Black freedom struggle and yet its legacy has been deeply distorted in American history textbooks. In some textbooks, the Panthers are barely mentioned and in others, they are maligned as anti-White and the cause for the demise of the Civil Rights Movement.
The rise of the Black Lives Matter movement has inspired a new appreciation for the Black Panthers—and the battle for the truth about their legacy is more important than ever.
Join Jesse Hagopian, co-editor of Teaching for Black Lives, for an interactive lesson on the Black Panther Party and an examination of their importance to the struggle for racial justice today.
