The Black Panther, 1966-2016

Vitrine #13: In Solidarity: Working with Comrades and Allies

The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense not only was integral to changing the face of black political and community organizing in the United States, but also played a substantial role in the Third World liberation movement. Key to the Party’s coalition-building activities were its communication efforts, with the media and with other organizations and supporters. Following the Oakland Chapter and Kathleen Cleaver’s lead, other Party chapters standardized the position of communications secretary; a position primarily filled by women members. These women worked tirelessly to build and strengthen solidarity among the Party’s comrades, often interfacing with women from other organizations.
