Something I didn't know last week

Dr. Huey P. Newton (Co-founder of the Black Panther Party) had a PhD in Social Science.

Huey P. Newton transferred to California State University Santa Cruz and achieved his PhD. in Social Philosophy. Dr. Newton's father had been a member of the NAACP and named his son after Huey P. Long, a radical politician. It was befitting of Dr. Newton to establish such a program.
