Recently the National Park Service (NPS) is spending roughly $100,000 for a project hoping to “honor the legacy” of the Marxist revolutionary group the Black Panther Party (BPP).

The University of California, Berkeley (UCB), which has been the center of violent protests from leftist groups, is receiving money for said project outside of the normal competitive bidding process.

“Committed to truthfully honoring the legacy of BPP activists and the San Francisco Bay Area communities they served, the project seeks to document the lives of activists and elders and the landscapes that shaped the movement,” the government said. “Producing an annotative bibliography that includes scholarly texts, newspaper, and magazine articles will be useful for future scholars of the movement. Equally significant, the project will document how the BPP impacted the visual arts, music, dance, and styles of the 1960s, 70s and 80s [and] will underscore the vastness of its impact on American culture.”

“Bay Area sites that shaped the BPP will be identified to memorialize a history that brought meaning to lives far beyond the San Francisco Bay Area,” the agency added.

Request for comment from the National Park Service was not returned.

The BPP was founded in 1966 and prided the self-defense and the arming of African Americans in California. The party’s views shifted to the left, advocating for “revolutionary intercommunalism” and the destruction of capitalism.

BPP founder Huey P. Newton created a 10-point memorandum that stated, “an end to the robbery by the capitalists of the black community” and for all black men to be immediately released from prison.

The FBI labels the BPP as advocates for “the use of violence and guerilla tactics to overthrow the U.S. government.”

The NPS said the project is for creating a “model for bringing diverse voices and communities together to understand their collective past and inspire a better future.”

The government stated it will have “substantial involvement” in the project, including staff and conducting reviews on the materials and progress of the work.

The NPS gave the grant without resistance because Berkeley is “uniquely qualified” to produce a history that “honors” the BPP.

Berkeley has been the location of violent anti-free speech riots by far-left groups antifa and “Black Bloc” several times this year. A mob protesting a speech by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February led to injuries and $100,000 in damage to the university. Masked antifa members threw commercial-grade fireworks, rocks at police, and Molotov cocktails.

The school is currently bracing for a planned free speech event with conservative pundits Ben Shapiro and Ann Coulter and Steve Bannon, chairman of Breitbart News and former adviser to President Donald Trump.

Berkeley is offering counseling sessions and boxes of tissues for students offended by bringing the conservative speakers to campus.
