Today in history: Huey Newton was born February 17, 1942. 
In 1966 Huey Newton co-founded the Black Panther Party, a pivotal organization in the 1960-70s. The Black Panthers arose out of the radicalizing Black freedom movement, inspired by the surging anti-imperialist and socialist movements around the world and upholding the right of armed self-defense. They burst onto the scene and inspired a generation of young people to move toward revolution and socialism. Huey Newton and Black Panther Party members faced severe repression from the FBI and local authorities around the country.
