"In Framing the Black Panthers, cultural historian Jane Rhodes examines the extraordinary staying power of the Panthers in the American imagination. Rhodes argues that once the media and pop culture latched onto the small, militant group, the Panthers became adept at exploiting and manipulating this coverage - through pamphlets, buttons, posters, ubiquitous press appearances, and photo ops - pioneering a sophisticated version of mass media activism. Paradoxically, the news media participated in the government campaign to eradicate the Panthers even as it simultaneously elevated them to a celebrity status that remains long after their demise."--BOOK JACKET.
