Huey P. Newton (February 17, 1942 – August 22, 1989) was a member of the Black Panther Party. He founded the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation.



In 1970, and against the U.S. government’s restrictions, the Black Panther Party accepted an invitation to visit China. Huey Newton was heavily influenced by Maoist philosophies and wanted to see for himself a “free and liberated territory with a socialist government” so in 1971 a group from the BPP took the journey. Tolbert Small was part of the Panther group making the trip.[1]
