African American organizations contribute to their communities with the highest ideals and goals. After watching this video what did Alondra Nelson teach you about the Black Panther Party that is often not shared but even forgotten. How is the legacy of their efforts still present today?

Forget about their demonization by the DOJ or the larger society. Concentrate on the history that should be told to young people in the generations after you.
