Taking to the stage with his lively charismatic and activist eloquence Mr. Seale illuminates the true sixties birth and youthful intelligentsia of the BPP. Unfolding the pragmatic unknown philosophical range of the sixties protest movement, which grew out of student activism, historical class analysis, scientific research, and programmatic grass-roots community organizing. NOT street life hooliganism as COINTELPRO political conservatism continues to distort.Mr. Seale transports the audience back to the turbulence of the late sixties and early seventies. A time when the activism of hundreds of thousands of protesters of many different ethnic groups created coalitions, which included young Black men and women selling hundreds of thousands of THE BLACK PANTHER weekly newspaper. Who created numerous community programs and registered thousands to vote, complete with law books in their hands and guns handy for self-defense against racist and fascist police and planned COINTELPRO vicious overt racist attacks at the time.
Today our right to self-defense stance is unheard of. Defining himself as revolutionary humanist Seale brings the BPP/Sixties protest movement era full circle showing how times have changed. How we must reach for the future: Demonstrate, Protest, organize real peoples programs and evolve a greater direct [participatory] community control democracy, void of racist, bigoted or chauvinistic practices. Void of all the extremes of global corporate exploitation. Complete with a profound cyber-space cell phone rights, science- based civil-human rights, and all people ecological rights activism.
Understanding how all civil-human rights issues today are interconnected, intertwined, interdependent, and interrelated with ecological environmental problems, new-millennium political issues, and global economics.
