This chapter details the transformation the Panthers underwent in the early 1970s as they attempted to recenter themselves in Oakland. These changes involved organizational reforms: moving offices, revamping the Black Panther newspaper, and updating the ten-point platform and program. There were also ideological transformations, such as refining the BPP’s position on the black church and black capitalists. During this period the Panthers focused on creating a revolutionary vehicle capable of liberating the black community in Oakland.
