Title

Ten-Point Program of the White Panther Party

Subject

White Anti-Racism

Description

Founded in 1968 by Pun Plamondon, Leni Sinclair, and John Sinclair as a response to Huey P. Newton’s call for separate, white, anti-racist groups in support of the Black Panther Party, the White Panthers served as a countercultural group dedicated to "cultural revolution." The group was most active in Detroit, Michigan, and was connected with the porto-punk band, MC5. Though a white anti-racist organization, the White Panthers worked with a variety of other groups in what was known as the Rainbow Coalition.

The Red Star Sisters was the name given to women in the
White Panther Party. In a 1970 statement, the Red Star Sisters wrote, "The Red Star is a universal symbol of COMMUNEism, of living and working together, coming together, a symbol of righteous revolution and love for ALL of humanity. We, the sisters of the White Panther Party, take the Red Star as the symbol of our own liberation, and align I ourselves with all oppressed people on the planet."

This artifact includes the White Panther's adaptation of the Black Panther Party's famous Ten-Point Program.
