COINTEL Black Panther Papers

Browse this community by:


The COINTEL (Counter-Intelligence Program) papers are reports on FBI surveillance of the Black Panther Party, Cleveland, Ohio, between 1967-1973. They were acquired by a donor, who obtained them from a Freedom of Information Act filing. These papers (approximately 1500 pages), which are in the public domain, are photocopies of the originals, with portions (presumably names) blacked out. Some newspaper clippings and other documents are included.
