SOFTENING THE LINES:The Decolonial Turn of the Black Panther newspaper
This article focuses on the BPP newspaper called the Black Panther Black Community News Service (Black Panther) which was a (bi-)weekly printed newspaper between 1967-1982. This article analyses two front and back covers from 1970-71 which illustrates the turning point in the party’s ideology. This turning point is examined through a decolonial lens with theories from author, feminist and social activist bell hooks, anti-colonial psychiatrist and philosopher Franz Fanon, and philosopher and semiotician Walter Mignolo.
