From the Publisher. Seize the Time is longtime activist and co-founder of the Black Panther Party, Bobby Seale’s riveting first-person account of the evolution of the Party as a national organization. In the words of Seale the book “...continues to have a universal apppeal as an account of an oppressed people's struggle for human liberation.”

Seale can be an uneven writer, but the tales of the Huey Newton and the formation of the Black Panthers are fantastic. My favorite is about Newton traveling around Berkeley, California, with a rifle in his car (which was legal in the 1960s, provided it was licensed and wasn’t loaded). Whenever the police pulled him over, he would respectfully get out of the car, pull out the rifle, and load it while he spoke calmly to the police.
