It's great to see Huey P Newton smiling and talking and the great support he received from his community ... nearly 50 years ago. He still stands tall as a beacon, not only to blacks, but to all of us. Repression as great, or greater, toady than it was in Huey's day, and Huey can inspire all of us to pick-up where he left off. The road leads on forever.

i am glad to know that there's still an organization standing strong in support of the BLACK RACE. We as a people need to become more educated and stop black on black crime, fighting against each other, back stabbing, crab mentality, pulling, and putting each other down. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

Thats how black people from what ever black culture should be, strong and intelligent thats whats missing today !!!!!

I have been always interested in our black history and movement until this day I've always admired our strength as a people and the struggles to become a strong race and with pride to carry thru these times and still tryin to be excepted as a people to this day. I love our strong black people.

huey was not a criminal and he is a great role model for men and women of all colors and nationalities

Little late to free the criminal. On August 22, 1989, Newton was fatally shot on the 1400 block of 9th street in West Oakland by 24-year-old BGF member and drug dealer Tyrone Robinson shortly after Newton left a crack house

That interview was amazing !!!!!!!! Thank You !!! Free HUEY !!! Prissy Love
