One thought on “Shadow Of The Panther: Huey Newton And The Price Of Black Power In America

  1. Christian

    Though widely panned by Black Panther supporters, the book reads well, powered by a detailed examination of a grim Huey Newton on an egomaniacal crash course If Pearson s assessment of Newton was accurate, summarized one critic, then the BPP leader was little than an intelligent, drug addicted sociopath Yeah, that about sums it up, if all you know about Huey comes from this book Pearson s failure, argues Errol Anthony Henderson, lies in his attempt to deny the value of the movement by pointing [...]

    The most balanced history I ve been able to find, but I wish this was a better researched book Nobody seems to have a detached point of view on the Panthers We probably need to see access to the FBI files to get the whole story, and I don t think the people in Oakland and other cities who lived this story are ready to talk to a historical researcher about what really went down Fascinating story though, and deserves to be than just a side note of American history in eth 60 s and 70 s, in my opin [...]

  3. Chuck

    This is not a very good book at all I appreciate Person s attempt to confront problems in the Black Panther Party, but he does not document many of his claims and fails to place them in a meaningful context Donna Murch s Living for the City Migration, Education, and the Rise of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, California covers much of the same ground and is way, way better.

    The Shadow of the Panther is a fascinating look at the Black Panther movement and particularly Huey Newton s role in it Pearson asserts that the Black Panther reflected the moods of its leader in that it could be a powerfully intellectual movement dedicated to improving lives one moment and a thug operation the next that shook people down and often turned to violence to solve issues Pearson states in his acknowledgements that he had genuine curiosity about the Panthers when he discovered The sha [...]

  5. Meg

    Very well written, but slanted The author briefly acknowledges some of the good work the Black Panthers did but most of his energy goes toward exposing the awful underside of the organization While I believe his reporting is accurate, it felt like he primarily wanted people to know the negative side so they wouldn t deify the Panthers I d like to read a book with a fuller, complex account Also, I know this book focused on Huey Newton, but still I would have liked a little detail on the women w [...]

  6. Mike Horne

    This was okay It gives a little background on civil rights Pretty negative toward the Black Panther Party If even half of what he says is true, they were some unpleasant folk I will have to read some reviews of this book.
