By:Getulio Reis & Kevin Lima HistoryThe BPP was formed in Oakland , California. It was created in October 1966. The party was formed to stop the racism that were meant towards the blacks. The BPP were committed to a violent way to get their rights. They made physical actions to make people give them rights. For example on April 6, 1968 an armed confrontation between Black Panthers and police led to 90 minute confrontation at a building housing Panthers. Eventually , the panthers surrendered. Over the course of the day, at least four policemen were wounded and one killed. One panther member, Bobby Hutton, was killed by the police and seven others were arrested. P. Newton Huey P. Newton was one of the leaders of the Black Panther Party (BPP). He created the Black Panther to have civil rights for all blacks. He was born on February 17 , 1942 in Monroe Louisiana.
