FREE HUEY

FREE HUEY / HANDCRAFTED EARRINGS/ 1.5INCHES TALL / POLYMER CLAY / HUEY P. NEWTON / BLACK PANTHER MOVEMENT

Available Colors: As Shown

Inspired by Huey P. Newton; African-American activist best known for founding the militant Black Panther Party with Bobby Seale in 1966.

Huey was arrested for allegedly killing an Oakland police officer during a traffic stop. He was later convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to two to 15 years in prison. But public pressure—"FREE HUEY" became a popular slogan of the day—helped Newton's cause. He was freed in 1970 after an appeals process deemed that incorrect deliberation procedures had been implemented during the trial.
