DuSable opens 'Black Panthers' exhibit

April 23, 2010 (CHICAGO) The exhibit is called "The Black Panthers: Making Sense of History," and it contains 48 original photographs taken by Black Panthers photographer Stephen Shames.

The group was revered by some and vilified by others. It promoted a revolutionary agenda for equality.

FBI head J. Edgar Hoover once called the Black Panthers the greatest threat to internal security.

The exhibit continues through August 8.
