Happy Birthday, Dr. Huey P. Newton
This speech was given on November 18, 1970, 50 years ago this year when Dr. Newton had just been released from incarceration for supposed crimes against the state of California. I bring these words of Dr. Newton in honor of the 75th birthday that would have been celebrated today had not Dr. Newton not been shot down on the streets of Oakland, California on August 22, 1989. In this speech Dr. Newton, yes Dr. Newton he achieved PHD status in his lifetime discusses the philosophy of the Black Panther Party For Self Defense it's goals and objectives through the lens of historical revolutionary thought.
