Co-founded the Black Panther Party with Huey Newton. Bobby Seale was one of the original "Chicago Eight" defendants charged with conspiracy and inciting to riot, in the wake of the 1968 Democratic National Convention, in Chicago. The evidence against Seale was slim as Seale was a last-minute replacement for Eldridge Cleaver and had been in Chicago for only two days of the convention. On November 5, 1969, Judge Julius Hoffman sentenced him to four years in prison for sixteen counts of contempt, each count accounting for three months of his imprisonment, because of his outbursts, and eventually ordered Seale severed from the case, hence the "Chicago Seven". During the trial, one of Seale's many outbursts led the judge to have him bound and gagged, as commemorated in the song "Chicago" written by Graham Nash and mentioned in the poem and song "H2Ogate Blues" by Gil Scott-Heron..ISBN-0812907159..Thanks for supporting a small family business..LOC

Format: Hardcover
Written in 1978 after bobby had left the party, this account fills in all the gaps in bobby's life. His childhood experiances that shape his life into who he would later become are so essential in understanding seale. His stories will not be given away by me cause this story speaks very well for itself. Sorry but there is not to much to say if you dug sieze the time, or even if you didn't. If you are interested in african americans who fought hard for social justice, this book is key. Seale is a great story teller, you wont just find ideological essay's here,...Great book, needs to be back in print.

When I checked out this book from the library, I was very excited about reading it. When I actualy read it, I was very sorry that I even wasted my time trying to track this book down. First of all, He spends too much time talking about his childhood, that simply has no meaning. It is also some confusing parts about his exit of the Black Panthers. In his comrade Elaine Brown's "Taste of Power", Brown states that Bobby Seale was kicked out of the Black Panther Party, but Bobby Seale ends the book, that he left instead of being thrown out. This is just one of the most dreadful books that I have read in a long time.
