    Description

    Anti-Black Panther Article Published in Combat, Vol. 1, No. 22.
    Four pages, 8.5" x 11"
    No place; July 15, 1969

    An article discussing the Black Panther Party's free breakfast for children and coloring book. The sentiments expressed by the unnamed author are clearly anti-Panther claiming that the program feeds 400-500 children versus the thousands claimed by the BPP. Also, that the funds used for the program are extorted with threat of violence from local businesses. Three of the four pages are filled with illustrations from the BPP coloring book, all showing violent images including armed children killing pigs dressed as policemen.

    We were not able to identify the author or any information about Combat, the publication. Nor could we find any examples of the BPP coloring book. Purportedly published by the Black Panthers, the coloring book was actually produced by the FBI's counter-intelligence division Cointelpro to incite division within the Black Panthers movement.

    Condition: Minor tape repairs made at flattened folds. Age toning throughout.
