Just imagine the fortitude of spirit it must’ve taken to be the first lady boss in the Black Panther Party. Communications secretary and the first female member of the Party’s decision-making body, Kathleen Cleaver also served as the spokesperson and press secretary. She was the key organizer of the national campaign to free the Party’s minister of defense Huey Newton, when he was jailed. Kathleen Neal Cleaver was among a handful of women who were prominent in the Black Panther Party, which included Elaine Brown and Ericka Huggins. She brought brains, beauty, charisma and firearm skills. Impeccable militant style, perfect afro, hazel green eyes, butterscotch complexion, full rosy lips spitting orders and intellect. A ride or die black bitch, without question. And definitely on the list of People We Would’ve Tried to Date in The 1960’s – 1970’s black revolution era. We’re still all caught up in that rapture, Boss. ♠️
