The Deacons for Defense and Justice

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Main Blog, On The Shoulders Of Giants

The Deacons helped change the ideas and strategies of civil rights organizations and helped lay the foundation for organizations such as the Black Panther Party to exist. They understood that non-violence was a tactic that can be used, but non-violence is not always the best course of action. They often challenged the KKK and Louisiana police who were looking to harm black people.
