It’s About Time/Black Panther Party Alumni Committee

This year marks the 50th year since the Black Panther Party was founded by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale back in 1966.  We want to educate people to the real history and legacy of the Black Panther Party. The BPP started many social programs to help educate and organize people, they tested thousands of people nationwide for Sickle Cell traits, registered thousands to vote, and fed thousands every morning in their Free Breakfast for School Children. It’s About Time/BPP Alumni Committee was formed in 1995 as a organizing committee to celebrate the Black Panther Party 30th year in 1996. We are former members of the BPP. Our national celebration will be in October in Oakland.
