Pamphlet[Black Panther Party] Eldridge Cleaver and Huey P. Newton. On the Constitution / Message to America / Towards a New Constitution. Oakland: Black Panther Party, 1970. Single newsprint tabloid sheet folded. The first page reprints Cleaver's 'On the Constitution'. the inner two pages "Message to America" by the Black Panther Party across the full sheet, and at the rear is Huey Newton's 'Towards a New Constitution'. Illustration of Party Chairman Bobby Seale strapped into the electric chair on cover. This collection of manifestos outlines in rousting prose the convictions and goals of the Black Panther Party. One of the goals was to enact a "Revolutionary People's Constitutional Convention", that would rewrite the Constitution, the "ultimate source of authority, the ultimate repository of the collective sovereignty of the people." This challenge is taken up by BPP Minister of Defense, Huey P. Newton, on the last page, in his treatise, "Towards a New Constitution." Newton proposes "a dictatorship by the people...simply that the people's needs will be the prime focus. And no one class, no one assortment of people, will receive the benefits and wealth of the country." The paper closes with the BPP mantra, "ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE." This paper is in very good condition overall.
