Connected in History: Black Activism Then & Now
We know the movement for Black Liberation has many faces, and crosses the boundaries of time and place. In the 20th century, the Black Panther Party helped push Black liberation struggles Left, towards internationalism and intersectionality. In the 21st century, the movement for Black Lives is continuing that legacy.
Please join Black leaders in the Bay Area and beyond for an invite only conversation with members of the Black Panther Party about power, leadership, repression and more. Appetizers and drinks will be served!
