Forty years after "Life" magazine sent writer Gilbert Moore and photographer Bingham to document and tell the story of the Black Panthers--a story that was eventually pulled due to a disagreement between Moore and the magazine--the photographs and their story are finally being published.
Forty years after Life magazine sent writer Gilbert Moore and photographer Howard Bingham to document and tell the story of the Black Panthers. The very secretive Panthers and their Minister of Information, Eldridge Cleaver would only allow Life to do the story if Bingham was the photographer. Bingham and Moore followed the Panthers for months from Oakland to New York to Los Angeles only to have the story pulled due to a disagreement between Moore and the magazine. Now, Forty years later, these photographs and their story will finally be published. The book will include interviews with Bingham and Moore about the assignment, the Black Panthers and their place in history. This lavishly produced limited edition book is signed by Howard L. Bingham and limited to 1,000 copies world-wide.
