He is the man whose intellectual capacity and community leadership abilities helped to found the Black Panther Party (BPP). Newton played an instrumental role in refocusing civil rights activists to the problems of urban Black communities. He also tapped the rage and frustration of urban Blacks in order to address social injustice. However, the FBI's significant fear of the Party's aggressive actions would not only drive the party apart but also perpetuated false information regarding the Panther's programs and accomplishments.

As the BPP rapidly grew across the nation, the Panthers threatened police from local, state and federal branches of government. The murder of several branch leaders as well as the destruction of BPP headquarters and survival programs led to the Parties demise by 1973. The SSAC's rejection of "Brothers On the Block", eventually led to Huey and Bobby's resignation from the Campus Organization.
