Revolutionary Theory

Hello I will be providing the prompt and some possible readings and comments made by my professor that can help. Prompt: What are the central tenets of Fred Hampton’s revolutionary theory? Comments: Within the revolutionary freedom movements of the 1960s and 1970s, strategies and analysis were developing to address state violence and form community resistance. Suffering, sorrow and rebellion were the conditions, from which intellectual and theoretical blueprints for revolutionary action were born. Only one party in this revolutionary era became the primary target for unsanctioned police violence, the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, a level of state aggression to destroy it that can only be explained by the fact that the party was a threat to racial capital. The Black Panthers in many ways provided a model for other communities of color to organize around. Organizing the black community centered on concepts of “community control,” “self-determination,” and “self-defense,” other communities utilized this framework offered by the Black Panthers, whilst tapping into their own community’s history of struggle, creating a variety of radical community-based organizations.  Collectively they constituted a “U.S. Third World Left” and served as building blocks for what activists such as Fred Hampton were building, a “rainbow coalition’ and what scholars such as Carlos Munoz and Manning Marable call “multiracial democracy”. To get a better understanding of what that means we will be looking at how the Black Panther Party practiced congregation in the forms of “survival programs,” as well as how they provided a revolutionary ideology that placed local concerns in Oakland within a global context of “national liberation” movements around the world. We will guide this towards a discussion of contemporary Oakland youth-based multi-racial violence prevention and community-organizing. Guiding Questions: How does the film ‘The Black Panthers: vanguard of a revolution’ jell, and differ, from your knowledge of the Black Panthers for Self-Defense’? In the film The Black Panthers: vanguard of a revolution, the film-makers assert that the state was scared of the ‘rise of a messiah’. But what about the thinking and work of Fred Hampton, made him a target for the state? The Mulford Act of 1968 is passed in direct response to the Black Panther Party for Self Defense organizing. Why? After considering the Black Panther Party for Self Defense understandings of self-defense and survival, how are those understandings present in prison abolition movements today?
