“People struggling for self-determination are a phenomenon of the twentieth century. These struggles are frequently understood and supported by the people of goodwill in the United States—when the struggles take place in South Africa, El Salvador, the Philippines, and Palestinian refugee camps.” (Shakur, 1987) The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense political party was a tactical group and a revolutionary Black Nationalist/socialist organization active in the United States from 1966 until 1982, with its only international chapter operating in Algeria from 1969 until 1972.
