Abstract:

Instructor of History, Brett D. Wilkinson(Northwest Vista College) will present a paper on “Students of the Black Panther Party: “Radicalization” of Student Protest”. This paper brings the Black Panther Party and its’ leaders back to the center of debate about the role that students played in the larger, so called, Civil Rights Movement. This paper asserts that we can only reach relevant conclusions regarding the impact of students on the ideology of African American protest and struggle in the U.S. through a re-evaluation of the BPP as an integral contributor to student protest. The paper re-contextualizes the Party as being part of a “continuum of student protest”, as opposed to merely being a “radical” or “militant” group on the fringes of black agitation, by comparing it to other student groups, such as SNCC, in addition to examining the various chapters, leaders and grassroots issues that were the focus of their mobilization. While BPP methodology may have been different, the membership, motives and issues were similar to that of other student organizations and, thus, should be made part of any meaningful narrative of the, so called, Civil Rights Movement and student protest. This study will aide in broadening historical perspectives on the overarching Civil Rights Movement as well as place the Black Panther Party at the forefront of student activism in U.S. history.
