Summary
The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, which advocated militancy, was organized in 1966 as a response to police misconduct and ongoing racial discrimination. Party member George Jackson spent most of his life in prison, where he studied radical theory and wrote two books, Blood in My Eye and Soledad Brother. He died in an attempted prison escape in which three prison guards and two white prisoners were brutally killed. In a reflection of the violence that characterized his life, at his request, shotguns were brought to his funeral rather than flowers. Jackson became a martyr for the Black Panther Party, but his death was veiled in rumors of conspiracy ranging from the FBI to the Black Panthers themselves
