Publisher's Summary

In October of 1966, in Oakland California, Huey Newton, and Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. The Panthers practiced militant self-defense of minority communities against the U.S. government, and fought to establish revolutionary socialism through mass organizing and community-based programs. The party was one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority and working class emancipation - a party whose agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines. Many words have been said about the Black Panthers...listen to what they have to say.

So Hard to understand

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, I couldn't understand Fred's speeches. I slowed down the audio as much as possible but realized that it was the quality of the recordings. That can't really be anyone else's fault. Fred not only spoke very quickly but he lived quite a long time ago.


What other book might you compare Power to the People to and why?

I listened to a program of Malcolm X's speeches and this was similar.


What three words best describe Fred Hampton’s voice?

Inspirational, fast and at times, incomprehensible


Could you see Power to the People being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes and uncertain.
