Publisher Comments:

"We knew from the beginning how critical it was to have our own publication, to set forth our agenda for freedom...to urge change, to use the pen alongside the sword," writes David Hilliard in the preface to this stunning collection of pages from the original groundbreaking editions of the Black Panther Party's official news organ and original essays by Hilliard, Elaine Brown, Dr. Stan Oden, Craig Laurence Rice, Kumasi, and Joshua Bloom. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; First called The Black Panther Community News Service and then andlt;iandgt;The Black Panther Intercommunal News Serviceandlt;/iandgt; (BPINS), the weekly periodical was nationally and internationally distributed. It was "sold in small stores in black communities, through subscriptions, and, mostly, on the streets by dedicated Party members," writes Brown, a party leader and author of A Taste of Power, in this edition. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In its heyday, the Party sold several hundred thousand copies of the newspaper per week and was highly regarded for the quality of its content by media professionals and its legion of readers alike. It ultimately became the most influential independent black newspaper in the United States, known not only for its fearless reportage and analysis but its stunning photographs and illustrations, including provocative and humorous political cartoons. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Published in time to mark the 40th anniversary of the BPINS, this book is, at once, an invaluable document of a little-known aspect of American history and a celebration of one of the most stunning accomplishments of a cultural and political movement that changed the nation. The original DVD, included in the back of the book, makes this a multimedia package that readers across generations can appreciate, documenting events and leaders of the past who still resonate and influence culture and politics today.


This is the first book of its kind on the Black Panther Intercommunal News Service featuring the iconography and text. Archives at Stanford University is the official depository of the Black Panther papers and other documents of the Panther movement. This Black Panther archive is the source of the material for this book.

PACHACUTI, February 21, 2008 (view all comments by PACHACUTI)
The concept for "The Black Panther: Intercommunal News Service 1967-1980 is long over due. The result is this fine publication that includes a thoroughly well produced video documentary of former Black Panthers and educators alike. What went wrong.....? There doesn't seem to be an emphesis on quality by the publisher. Reproductions are inferior and many important news issues are missing. Sure, there were over 350 issues spanning 14 years in all and one cannot expect everything to be included here but there could have been more consistency. The decision to use a harsh "red" color tone in the book really takes away from the content of the articles and Elaine Brown's comments are forgetable. It would have been more constructive to issue this book in black and white.

Over all, I will wait until a more consize publication comes out. Similar to Emory Douglas book covering many of his most compelling art work for the Black Panther newspaper (1967-1980).
