About the Author

Stephen Shames is one of America’s leading photographers dealing with social issues, whose career began with his work with the Black Panthers. Describing his work, the New York Times said, “Mr. Shames follows in the honored tradition of Jacob Riis and Lewis Hine.” One of his eight books, Outside the Dream, his exploration into child poverty in America, earned him the accolades of President Jimmy Carter and Senators Edward Kennedy and Bill Bradley. Stephen's work has been widely exhibited and is in the permanent collections of many museums. He represented by Steven Kasher Gallery and lives in New York City.
 
Bobby Seale was the chairman of the Black Panther Party during its most vital years. He is the author of Seize the Time: The Story of the Black Panther Party and Huey P. Newton (1970) and A Lonely Rage: The Autobiography of Bobby Seale (1978). Born in Liberty, Texas, he worked as a mechanic after a stint in the Air Force. He met Huey Newton at Merritt College, where they were both enrolled in the early 1960s, and together they founded the party. A political activist and community organizer, he lives in Vallejo, California.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond my expectations!
Reviewed in Canada on July 27, 2020
This is one of the most in-depth and fascinating books on the Black Panther Party that I have ever seen or read. Its filled with so many photos. It’s definitely a keepsake. The BPP were not the villains their governments and media made them out to be. They cared deeply about their community and only wanted the best for them. It’s pure evil what happened to many of the members. We as a society need to do much better.

Very pleased with purchase :)

Fast delivery too which is always a plus.
