Tyla Collier delivers the author's narrative on how centuries of abuse to Black Americans led to deep unrest and the founding of the Black Panther Party. Collier's narration gathers strength when she describes scenes of Bobby Seale and Huey Newton's early organizational attempts in 1966. The Black Panthers' "power to the people" was less about militancy and more about gaining equity in education, health care, justice, and politics. They also sought gender equality and the creation of supportive communities. Clearly illuminated is the author's hope for today's youth to become the new vanguard of these goals. Both young adults and adults will be affected by this audiobook's emotive tone, tragic events, and parallels to recent events. S.W.
