In addition to promoting his book about former Kansas City Black Panthers leader Pete O’NealCase for a Pardon – “I’m bringing in the National Alumnae Association of the Black Panther party in October,” Penn says. “I’ll be the host with Charlotte O’Neal – she’s married to Pete ‘Neal.

tshirt“It’ll be at all different places around the city,” Penn says, “but principally at the Bruce Watkins Cultural Heritage Center on October 23rd. ”

    It should be a soft landing for an old Black Panther coming back home to the cheers of the multitude.

    Maybe Pete should move to Winston Salem, where the city fathers are erecting a monument where the Panthers shot it out with the Po Po.

    “Sorry I ruined your black panther party”
