apr 15, 1969 - The Black Panther Movement
The Black Panther Party or the BPP was a revolutionary socialist organisation. The Black Panther Party's core practice was its armed citizens' patrols to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality in Oakland, California. The Clash's "White Riot' is a good example of a song about the race war and economics at the time.
