Political Consciousness Necessities
In the process of raising the consciousness of hurting people, you must first meet their basic needs such as the need for food. The Black Panther party realized this during the height of its movement in the late 1960s and 1970s. They developed food related programs as part of a larger process of mobilizing citizens to join a revolutionary struggle against injustice largely rooted in implicit bias against minorities and the poor. Members of the organization solicited food donations, put the donations in bags with the organization's Black Panther emblem on them, and gave the food away to the needy.
