Stokely Carmicheal's style of fighting racial injustice was violent. In 1966 Carmichael became student nonviolent coordinating commitee chairman, in 1967 he became the honarary prime minister of the black panther party. The black power concept became Carmichaels personal mission signifying political power the organization of african americans for liberation by any means necessary veiwpoint in which he agreed with Malcolm X. In 1966 the violent white resistance to civil rights protests in the south in combination with many beatings he had suffered impelled Carmichael to abandon his commitments to nonviolence and integration. He organized a seperate african american party the Lowndes county freedon organization and chose as its logo a ferocious black panther.
