From Black Power to Black Lives Matter:
The Black Panther Party, 55 Years Later
The Stanford Connection
Stanford University students once invited the Party’s visionary leader Huey P. Newton to speak on campus, alongside Angela Davis, Harvey Milk and other social justice activists in 1978. And the connection continued for decades to come. In 1996, Stanford's archives received the official papers of the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation.
It is now time for Stanford students to honor the Party’s legacy for contemporary movements for racial and economic justice around the world. With an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach, this initiative encourages meaningful dialogue and intellectual exchange between Stanford students and faculty and local Bay Area community members.
