CHOICE Review

Anthropologist/lawyer Magnarella here tells the story of Pete O'Neal and his wife Charlotte. O'Neal was a founding member of the Kansas City chapter of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and an important personage in the organization nationally. In 1969, O'Neal was arrested and convicted of transporting a shotgun across state lines. Considering the then-US-government and local police war policy against the BPP, O'Neal fled, traveling first to Sweden, then Algiers, where he visited the BPP's most influential couple, Eldrige and Kathleen Cleaver. He proceeded to Tanzania, where he has been in exile ever since. Magnarella provides historical and contemporary social context surrounding the O'Neals' story, most of which is conveyed through their own words. O'Neal's pro bono attorney since 1997, Magnarella provides important history and analysis of Pete's legal problems, including attempts to overturn the wrongful conviction that prevents his safe return to the US. Also described are the O'Neals' decades of work for social justice and global understanding from their exile in Tanzania. A well-written, carefully researched, and compelling story of two exceptional and evolving individuals who continue to live in the spirit of the original BPP, this book (which deserves better indexing) will be a valuable addition to collections on BPP history and African/African American studies. Summing Up: Recommended. All readers. --Fred J. Hay, Appalachian State University
