The New Black Panther Party was initially founded in Dallas, Texas and would later bill itself as a national organization with Dr. Khalid Muhammad as it's Chairman. Upon the Death of Comrade Khalid Muhammad, the organization was then headed by Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz.

This is interview is important because of the work that the Party is doing in Hemphill, Texas around the murder and lynching of an African man in November 2013. After being missing since November 23rd, Alfred Wright's body was founded by volunteer searchers. His eyes were gouged out, throat was slashed, tongue and ears cut off out.
