Black Panther Party Visited Norman Lear to Discuss the Buffoonery of African Americans in his Shows

The Black Panther Party of the 1960’s was seen in different ways by different races and cultures of people.  For me, an African-American woman, mother and grandmother,  they will always be remembered as guardians, educators, and up lifters of their communities.

It was interesting to learn that The Black Panther Party visited Norman Lear to discuss the Buffoonery of African Americans in his shows, and that while it was already in the making, the show “The Jefferson’s” was influenced by their visit.
