From We Want Freedom: A Life in the Black Panther Party, by Mumia Abu-Jamal


"The average Panther rose at dawn and retired at dusk and did whatever job needed to be done to keep the programs going for the people, from brothers and sisters cooking breakfast for the school kids, to going door-to-door to gather signatures for petitions, to gathering clothes for the free clothing program, to procuring donated supplies from the neighboring merchants.
The average Panther's life was long, hard, and filled with work."

From Chapter 8, A Panther's Life
