In December of 2008 I interviewed 2 veterans from the Black Power movement in Houston Texas about People's Party 2, a group modeled on the Black Panther Party, which existed from 1970-1971 and was followed by the Houston Black Panther Party which lasted till 1974.

Charles Boko Freeman was a Member of Peoples Party 2 and is currently based in Atlanta. Ester King participated in the Black Power Movement in Houston and continues as a community activist today.
