Interview with Bobby Seale

Okay, what was your message to the convention in Gary? And how do you feel you were received?


I wasn't allowed to participate in the convention. I was taking some entertainment thing to speak to some people for twenty minutes, which, uh, I always thought was absurd in the first place. Being one, a, an organization as the Black Panther Party which was entrenched and rooted into this overall struggle. So for whatever reason whoever organized that convention, they obviously didn't want a leading representative of the Black Panther Party to participate in the convention.
