Social change possible, Black Panther says

By Delores Jones

Kansas City, MO – Bobby Seale was the chairman and co-founder, along with Huey Newton, of the Black Panther Party, an organization formed in 1966 to guard against police brutality in black neighborhoods and provide social services. Last week, he was the keynote speaker at Tent State University, a group formed by UMKC students to protest against some of the University's practices.
