    "No comment Xeon, just a posted pic with no remarks? "

    Not really. I did not feel it was necessary. The historical nature of the photographs speaks for itself.....

    I need or would like to have a link source, so that it can be determined who these women are. Is that possible?

    I don't think so. The photographs pulled off the internet. The link to the b/w pic's domain is no longer functional. The link to the color pic is: http://sensesofcinema.com/2014/cteq/black-panthers-2/

    Ha! Ha! Ha! I was not being smart mouthed nor snarky. I was just stating I felt the pics spoke for themselves and commentary was not necessary. My response was not a rant. But I have noticed your responses seem to suggest hypersensitivity to differences of opinion. Please do not take these things personal. Everyone has different experiences and opinions........

    Dozens of books have analyzed the Panthers’ history, but until Stanley Nelson’s revelatory new PBS-funded documentary, The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, no one had attempted to consolidate so much about the group, including historical information, archival footage and interviews. The film is dense with information, and offers a gripping ride through the picket signs and calls for policy reform that defined the 1960s. The conservationist approach in turns makes a successful case for how the Panthers’ impact remains unparalleled, and continues to reverberate from political activism to pop culture today. “There would be no hip-hop without the Panthers, because they were the first to bring out the hip-hop attitudes,” Nelson tells Newsweek ....
