-December 28th, 2017: Resist and Exist is in this Black Panther book - From Old Guard to
Vanguard: A Second Generation Panther By Malik Ismail.
This book is a mandatory read for all community organizers. It should be in your local library and at
your local college. This book covers the New Panther Vanguard Movement, founded B Kwaku Duren
(Chairman), Charles Boko Freeman, and Shareef Abdullah R.I.P. (Panthers from the 70's). The New
Panther Vanguard Movement is the second generation of the Black Panther Party started in the 90's.
They would do important community work in South Central Los Angeles including: grocery food give-
away, free food programs, free classes, bus to prisons and much more. There is no gun waving with
them – they are all deeply invested community organizers, and the book really shows the heart of this.
It is personal, historical, and very educational. Even Bobby Seale honored the New Panther Vanguard
Movement. The New Panther Vanguard worked with all kinds of different organizations, people of
different ethnicity, and counter culture groups (including a punk rocker anarchist).
Towards the end of the book the author talks of his travels around the world, and goes into an
educational history. Some quotes from the author:

“I realized that a platform without a program is symbol without substance...”,

“I understood that in our era, we cannot carry past pains in our present struggle for collective

“Though our focus was the Black community, we knew that poor Whites, Latin, and Asian communities
of color needed a hand, too, so we served anyone that looked like they need help.”
