Lil’ Bobby Hutton became one of the first members of the Black Panther Party, after writing and finalizing the Ten Point Program. In fact Bobby Hutton was a part time afterschool assistant at the North Oakland Neighborhood Service Center, for the Department of Human Resources for the City Government of Oakland, California. Hired as a youth assistant, he studied the introduction of the Autobiography of Malcolm X to improve his reading skills.
Lil’ Bobby Hutton was 1 of 30 Panthers who traveled to the California state capitol in Sacramento, on May 2, 1967, to demonstrate against the Mulford Act, a bill that would prohibit carrying loaded firearms in public. The group walked into the state assembly armed, as a protest to the Mulford Act. Lil’ Bobby Hutton Hutton, Bobby Seale and several of the Panthers were then arrested.
Lil’ Bobby Hutton was the first Black Panther Party member murdered (while in the custody of the Oakland police). During the inquest on Lil’ Bobby Hutton, one police person surprised the inquest by testifying that the other cops had literally "murdered Bobby Hutton" after Lil’ Bobby Hutton had surrendered. Lil’ Bobby Hutton walked out with his hands up and in between several policemen. One cop used his foot to shoved Bobby Hutton in the back saying "run nigger." Lil’ Bobby Hutton, put his hands up, stumbled forward a few steps and some five policemen all open fire, shooting and murdering Lil’ Bobby Hutton. Lil’ Bobby Hutton's death at the hands of the Oakland police was yet another example of police brutality committed against the Oakland community and the Black Panther Party.
Hutton's funeral was held on April 12 at the Ephesians Church of God in Berkeley, California. About 1,500 people attended the funeral. A rally held afterwards in West Oakland was attended by over 2,000 people.
DeFremery Park in West Oakland, California was unofficially named after Lil’ Bobby Hutton not long after his death. "Lil' Bobby Hutton Day" has been held annually at the park since April 1998. Organized by family members and former and former Black Panther Party members, the memorial event features speakers, performers, and art works commemorating Hutton's dedication to the party.
Yes, we need to remember and honor Panthers like Lil’ Bobby Hutton , who lost there lives working for the Black Panther Party, one of the first organizations in U.S. history to militantly struggle for ethnic minority and working class emancipation - a party whose political electoral agenda was the revolutionary establishment of real economic, social, and political equality across gender and color lines. We also need continue to work that the original Black Panther Party began. We must continue build and maintain strong, vibrant progressive movements through local, state and national progressive political representation & activism which will continue the work for greater people empowerment
