You can read it right in these pages: Black History Month, as its name clearly implies, is a celebration of black history, not black accomplishments. If Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale University wants to doff its figurative hat to the Black Panther Party, the group is perfectly within its rights, if not the boundaries of good taste.
As Campus Reform reminds readers:
The Black Panther Party has been notably associated with violence since its founding, starting with the arrest of Huey Newton, the group’s defense minister, for murdering an Oakland police officer. In 1970, 21 members of the Panthers were charged with plotting to assassinate police officers and bomb buildings, and eight more members were later arrested on murder and conspiracy charges.
