Although never a member of the Black Panther Party. The Black Panther Party was an influential presence in Nikki Giovanni's unapologetic Black Revolutionary Poetry.

Black Power 

(For All The Beautiful Black Panthers East)

But the whole thing is a miracle---See?

We were just standing there

talking—not touching or smoking


When this cop told


Move along buddy—take your whores

outa here

And this tremendous growl

From out of nowhere

Pounced on him

Nobody to this very day

Can explain

How it happened

And none of the zoos or circuses

Within fifty miles

Had reported

a panther
