dc.description.abstract Many people believe that the black militant movements of the 1960s were all about "getting whitey", burning cities, and carrying guns. While some militants had this mentality, the reality is that the majority just wanted change in American society and an end to the racism and discrimination that blacks had faced since the founding of the nation. A group that is especially misunderstood is the Black Panther Party. Following a brief background of the Civil Rights Movement, an introduction to "Black Power" and the Nation of Islam, the Black Panthers are discussed in their roles in both the United States and Australia.
