It was inspiring to hear a man talk of his past, and the upbringing of himself along with the great Black Panther Panther. He helped to open my eyes to some of the lies, and the things that were excluded, that were in my history books growing up. I hope to take the wisdom he bestowed on me and turn that into knowledge for my own use. I now carry the BPP spirit with me as I am better acquainted with their true goals and wishes.
