The Pacifica Radio Archives - The Black Panther Party
"The Pacifica Radio Archives is proud to present a sample of the many recordings held in our vaults of key activists and organizers of the Black Panther Party. Founded in Oakland, CA in 1966 as the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, the organization fought back against racial profiling and police harassment and abuse in Black communities and stressed self-determination, self-empowerment and Black autonomy through its Ten-Point Program. This collection of audio recordings documents speeches, interviews, news coverage and documentaries by or about the Black Panther Party as broadcast on Pacifica Radio stations between 1966 and 1989 and includes the voices of many notable members of the Panthers, including Huey P. Newton, Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, H. Rap Brown (Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin), Kathleen Cleaver and Elaine Brown. The Pacifica Radio Archives worked in conjunction with the University of California, Berkeley's Moffitt Library to preserve the recordings offered here."
