“The party aimed to gain complete control of the institutions in thecommunity.” (Van Peebles 75) The Black Panthers were aiming to achieve the total control of allthe institutions in the community.By late 1968 the Black Panthers were armed with members who were eager to applyvarious points of their 10-Point Program.

The first program, which was to meet the immediate needs of the citizens pledged to serve,means that the people who are willing to serve the Panthers were given their needs first. Thesecond program was used to inspire African Americans to pick up guns to defend the programssent out a message to the African Americans to try and defend the programs so that they can last.The final program was just a demonstration of how the white government had everything theyneeded and more, but only did so little with it, while the Black Panther Party had so little, but didso much with that little that they had.

The Black Panthers ‘Through its beliefs and actions did the Black Panther Party cause detriment to the Civil Rights Movement?’ From the early 1600’s African/American people were treated as an inferior race, enslaved, tortured, segregated from white Americans, treated like animals, murdered indifferently and were governed by different laws. By the mid 1950’s, black Americans were starting to seek some equality and put an end to discrimination and oppression at which time Martin Luther King became president of The Southern Christian leadership conference. Martin Luther King and his followers were determined to fight for equality of the blacks one step at a time and by peaceful means. The Black Panther Party was formed in California in 1966, by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Initially formed to protect local communities from police brutality and racism, The Black Panthers believed that the non-violent campaign of Martin Luther King had failed and any promised changes to their lifestyle via the 'traditional' civil rights movement, would take too long to be implemented or simply not introduced.
