9. Huey P. Newton —
This Monroe, Louisiana born, Oakland, California raised political and urban activist was one of the founders of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in 1966. Newton's views of "revolutionary humanism" found him adopting many of the social norms within urban areas and reshaping them to appeal to the larger community. Learning the legal system allowed Newton to arm the Panthers and police the police. His dissertations are still being applied and referred to to this day.
