Pisces. Raised in a ghetto of North Philly. Political activist. Strong, brilliant, now an attorney. Trailblazer among power-seeking black men: Elaine Brown. With all due respect to the legacy of the Black Panther Party, she is on our list of People We Would’ve Tried to Fuck during the 1960’s – 1970’s black revolution. Just so happens, that revolution coincided with the sexual revolution and liberation age for women. So we imagine: Free Huey, Free Love. Because radicalism and being just plain gorgeous are hot. So evoked are deep-seated and retroactive bisexual feelings. We would have embraced in black lesbian love, in mutual intellectual admiration and solidarity against black mysogyny. Articulate orators with lips in unspeakable places. Celebrating feminist sexuality.
Today we are aroused by the mere thought of a menage a trois with Elaine Brown and Huey P. Newton. If we could travel back in time, we’d march home after a Black Panther rally and make love to Elaine. Huey might swing by after the Party men’s meeting? Wake us if we’re dreaming.
Elaine, our militant queen, with her black bitch manner and lovely skin. Perfectly coiffed afro – to the sometimes hot-combed swept-up power bun – everything as foreplay. Down with the struggle, struggling to get down and go down.. to the nappy dugout.
Raised voices, raised fists in climax: Power to the People!
For those unaware, Elaine Brown, was the 2nd female leader ever within the Black Panther Party. From 1974 to 1977, foxy Brown was Chairwoman of the Black Panther Party. As a Panther, she also ran twice for a Council member position in The City of Oakland, California. Brown briefly ran for the Green Party presidential nomination in 2008.
