The New Black Panther Party (NBPP) is a U.S.-based Black nationalist organization founded in Dallas, Texas, in 1989. Despite its name, the NBPP is not an official successor to the Black Panther Party. Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is not legitimate and "there is no new Black Panther Party". The party is not influenced by Marxism, unlike the "old" Black Panther Party.

There are influences from the Nation of Islam. Similarities include stated Black separatism and anti-White views. It is also one of the few pro-Black organizations that politically correct sources label as Black supremacist and "hate group", possibly related to stated anti-Semitic views.

As of 2009, the NBPP claimed a few thousand members organized in 45 chapters, while others estimates are much smaller.

There is a splinter group named the "New Black Panther Party for Self Defence" or "NBPP SD".
