About: Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton were heavily inspired by the teachings of activist Malcom X. The two joined together in October 1966 to create the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, which adopted the late activist's slogan "freedom by any means necessary" as their own. Before the Black Panther Party, Seale and Newton created a group known as the Soul Students Advisory Council. "The goal was to develop a college campus group that would help develop leadership; to go back to the black community and serve the black community in a revolutionary fashion".
