Seed was an underground newspaper put together by artists Don Lewis and Earl Segal and published bi-weekly in Chicago, Illinois from May 1967 to 1974. There were 121 issues published in all.

In Chicago Seed magazine/newspaper Vol 5 No 5 1970, Black Panthers were featured a lot in this issue. It also included a Free Bobby Seale poster. 

In October 1966, Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party for Self Defense with Huey Newton, whom he first met in the early 60s at the Afro-American Association (AAA) in Oakland. Inspired by Malcolm X, Seale and Newton adopted his doctrine of “freedom by any means necessary” for the Black Panther Party. The organization, which was active in the United States until 1982, promoted black self-defense and called for an end to police brutality. Initially tied to black nationalism, over time the group aligned more with socialism. They carried out a number of community programs in poor, black urban areas including police patrols and the Free Breakfast for Children program. 

Jim Roslof, Karl Heinz-Meschbach, Paul Zmiewski, Skip Williamson, Jay Lynch, Peter Solt, and other 60's artists contributed to one of the most beautiful underground press publications of its time. It was known for colorful psychedelic graphics and it's eclectic, non-doctrinaire radical politics, and was also a member of the Underground Press Syndicate.
