Welcome to the official site for the Black Panther Party Research Project!
This is an academic site designed to provide information for individuals who want to locate primary and secondary sources about the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, the organization co-founded during October 1966 in Oakland, California by Bobby Seale and the late Dr. Huey P. Newton.
The Black Panther Party Research Project (BPPRP) was created during 1997 to locate sources and develop finding aids to assist researchers and the general public with uncovering information about one of the twentieth century's most controversial, yet least researched organizations.
For more information about the Black Panther Party Research Project, please read our mission statement and browse other links on this site.
Thanks for visiting and please come again, as our site is still under construction.
