"Listen to these voices of young men and women who poured their insights, courage, and creative energy into New York City's fledgling Black Panther Party that generated chapters in all five boroughs. Unlike out west, where police shot and killed Panthers to disrupt the revolutionary group, New York relied more heavily on courts, jails, and prison to sabotage the organization. This reprint edition allows a new generation to hear these amazing stories, and additionally, to read the authors' reflections and insights for today." --Kathleen Cleaver, Black Panther Party Communications Secretary (1967 1971); Senior Lecturer, Emory University School of Law

"Look for Me in the Whirlwind could not come at a timelier moment in history. As newly-emerging grassroots movements challenge state violence against Black people in the U.S., it is essential that new generations learn anew, and that older ones are reminded, of police and FBI tools of repression deployed to demobilize Black radical activism and its growing influence on the Black working class in the '60s. These remembrances, by those framed in the NY Panther 21 case, are vital building blocks for reconstructing the history of one of the least understood chapters of the Black Panther Party. They are also indispensable reading for those seeking to understand how individual activists and their movements were able to hold their center in the face of harrowing government repression." --Johanna Fernandez, Professor of History, Baruch College Department of Black and Latino Studies, City University of New York; co-curator, Presente! The Young Lords in New York

"This book demonstrates the scope of the Panthers' intellectual gifts as well as the compassion and revolutionary spirit at the center of their radical grassroots activism." --Publishers Weekly
