Bobby Seale's speeches in the late sixties were not only powerful and violent in contents, the rhythm, word choice, and variations in volume and tone were just as powerful tools to drive home the message of the Black Panther Party and to arouse the audience. Listen to his Up Against The Wall speech at the Filmore East in 1968 and you will notice that not only the words themselves but also the skilful and musical way in which they were strung together lend this speech its stunning power.
Political slogans, chants and rhythmic hand clapping are as much part of the revolutionary vocabulary as rhetorics. From a prison interview of Bobby Seale from c. 1970 we have taken a phrase that Seale used to describe the conditions of his cell, and with the help of a simple sound editing programme we have looped this phrase into a rhytmic chant. Not so much a revolutionary chant as an analytical one. To sum up this shit.
