Why are Black Libraries Important?
This library was created to add literature to the garments that have shifted the world and provided a voice for the voiceless. As a brand rooted in activism, we felt it necessary to unearth the literature of the Black Panthers that create the foundation for you to say it loud, “I’m Black and I’m Proud.”
Black Love Always. – Marcia Smith, Founder HGC Apparel
Even fifty years after it was founded, the Black Panther Party remains one of the most misunderstood political organizations of the twentieth century. But beyond the labels of “extremist” and “violent” that have marked the party, and beyond charismatic leaders like Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, and Eldridge Cleaver, were the ordinary men and women who made up the Panther rank and file.
In The Black Panthers, photojournalist Bryan Shih and historian Yohuru Williams offer a reappraisal of the party’s history and legacy. Through stunning portraits and interviews with surviving Panthers, as well as illuminating essays by leading scholars, The Black Panthers reveals party members’ grit and battle scars-and the undying love for the people that kept them going.
