Huey Newton & The Black Panthers Original Negatives from San Francisco Examiner (150+)

Huey Newton & The Black Panthers Original Negatives from San Francisco Examiner (150+)

African-American political activist Huey Newton teamed with Bobby Seale to found the Black Panther Party in 1966 and, as these 150+ negatives from the San Francisco Examiner's photo archives show, Newton was the focal point of a major trial in 1968 after he was involved in a shooting across the Bay in Oakland, during which a police officer was killed. Newton was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 2-to-15 years in prison before the California Appellate Court reversed the conviction and ordered a new trial. After two subsequent mistrials, the Alameda County Superior Court dismissed the charges after the district attorney said he would not pursue a fourth. One of the most interesting periods of African American culture and the spawn of many movements including rap and Tupac Shakur. Negatives range from 5x2.5" (2-image) and 4.5x1.5" (3-image) format.
