The movement in a new book, with iconic images & art

9Spend time in West Oakland today and you’ll still glimpse traces of the history that was made there 50 years ago

In a new book, Power to the People, is the story of the Black Panther Party, founded 50 years ago by Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton.

The words are Seale’s, with contributions by other former party members; the photographs, including many icons of the 1960s, are by Stephen Shames, who also interviewed many other members of the party—including Kathleen Cleaver, Elbert “Big Man” Howard, Ericka Huggins, Emory Douglas, and William “Billy X” Jennings—and supplements his own photography with Panther ephemera and graphic art.
