The Black Panther Coloring Book was released in 1968 and follows the journey of black (or white, depending on how you colour them) people from Africa to America, where they apparently all procured huge knives and started killing police. It makes the Black Panthers look like crazy, irrational lunatics and this was the point, because it was actually produced by the FBI and sent to white families across the country. It represented an effort to discredit the Panthers as any sort of valid political movement and reinforce the opinion that Huey P. Newton and his organisation were psychotic militants who killed white people and police indiscriminately.
