Reminds me of when Jesus Christ fed the multitudes who came to hear him speak and were hungry afterwards.BPP displays love for the people.

Well what a wonderful way to spend those Food Stamps.

I think and belive this was a great thing to do for the community.

This was 1972..The socalled NBPP had nothing to do with this..or anything else..they are a phony organization that has "high jacked" the name of the real Black Panther Party

This charitable event took place in 1982 yet the Panthers still tout it on their site.  This was the first and last good deed performed by the NBPP.  Nice work, Dr. Shabazz and Co.
