Bobby Seale, Latter-Day Black Panther


Racism, fascism, male chauvinism… these were all the targets of the original Black Panther Party in the 1960s. 

But the party's "all power to the people" approach was widely misunderstood and feared, and the subject of investigation and infiltration by the FBI. 

Bobby Sealewas there for all of it, and is still around to talk about it. 

Seale was a founder of the BPP, and he now brings his message and memories to college audiences. 

We visit with him before an appearance at Southern Oregon University.
