The Black Panther Party (BPP) was a Black Power political organization founded by college students Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton in 1966. The party was active in the United States between 1966 and 1982, with chapters in numerous major cities, and international chapters in Britain and Algeria. Upon its inception, the Black Panther Party's core practice was its open carry armed citizens' patrols (cop watching) to monitor the behavior of police officers and challenge police brutality in the city. Influent members include Fred Hampton, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis, Erika Huggins, Charles Barron, Nelson Malloy, Bobby Rush
to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and Williams' book Negroes with Guns, Newton decided to organize patrols to follow the police around to monitor for incidents of brutality. But with a crucial difference: his patrols would carry loaded guns. Black Panther Party members were involved in many fatal firefights with police. Huey Newton allegedly killed officer John Frey in 1967, and Eldridge Cleaver led an ambush, in which two officers were wounded and Panther Bobby Hutton was killed. In 1969, the FBI developed an extensive counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) of surveillance, infiltration police harassment, and many other tactics, designed to undermine Panther leadership, incriminate and assassinate party members. The program was responsible for the assassination of Fred Hampton and is accused of assassinating other Black Panther members, including Mark Clark.
The Black Panther Party first publicized its original "What We Want Now!" Ten-Point program on May 15, 1967

An estimated 15 million to 26 million people participated in the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests in the United States, making it one of the largest movements in the country's history.
