Black Panther Party Exhibit & Discussion
Golden Gate Branch is hosting a pop-up exhibit and film screening of original Black Panther Party (BPP) memorabilia. The exhibits were put together by Billy X Jennings, BPP Historian, from the archives of It’s About Time.
After the film Lords of the Revolution, former Panthers will join us for a panel discussion of their experiences in the BPP. Delve into the history of this incredibly influential group with firsthand accounts of Party activities and programs.
This event is cosponsored by the Commons Archive.
