Seale Greeted by Attorney: Attorney Charles Garry greets Black Panther leader Bobby Seale, his client. Seals is under a four-year sentence for contempt of court in Chicago. He was lodged in jail to await an extradition hearing on a Connecticut murder conspiracy charge.

Bobby Seale (1936-present) is an American political activist. He and fellow activist Huey P. Newton co-founded the Black Panther Party to organize the black community and express their desires and needs in order to resist the racism and classism perpetuated by the system. Seale and Newton together wrote the doctrines "What We Want Now!" which Seale said were intended to be "the practical, specific things we need and that should exist" and "What We Believe," which outlines the philosophical principles of the Black Panther Party in order to educate the people and disseminate information about the specifics of the Party's platform. These writings were part of the Party's Ten-Point Program, a set of guidelines to the Black Panther Party's ideals and ways of operation.

Wire photographs were originally transmitted over phonelines, then later, by satellite. They were first used in the early 1920s. Associated Press became a leader with this. After pigment touch-ups, etc., the print is put into a drum (like a drum scanner). The image gets converted into audio tones that are transmitted. The tones are received and beamed onto photo-sensitive paper. Wire photographs are copies without originals---they are hybrid, transmitted objects.
