J. Edgar Hoover called it “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country.” A look back to the 60s and the radical Black Panther Party – how and why it formed, where it flourished, and why so many young people from across the country risked their lives to be a part of the Panther’s socialist revolution. Joshua Bloom is co-author of "Black Against Empire: The History and Politics of the Black Panther Party." Original air date 8/14/13
