Revolutionary Suicide is an autobiography written by Huey P. Newton, co-founder and leader of the Black Panther Party (BPP). The Chief ideologue and strategist of the BPP, Newton taught himself how to read during his last year of high school, which led to his enrolment in Merrit College in Oakland in 1966; the same year he formed what was then known as the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. The Party urged members to challenge the status quo with armed patrols of the impoverished streets of black Oakland, and to form coalitions with other oppressed groups. The party spread across America and internationally as well, forming coalitions with the Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cubans.[1]
