How do we meet our neighbors?

By looking at archival news footage of Black Panther activities, Saturu will share BPP community-building tools to use in your neighborhood today.
This workshop is part of Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration among African Americans across the country commemorating the announcement of the end of slavery in the United Sates.
Light refreshments provided by North Oakland’s Phat Beets food justice group.
‘Neighbor Connections’ workshops are part of ‘Commons Archive’, a neighborhood memory bank at the Golden Gate Branch Library. Commons Archive honors neighbors as participants, narrators, and creators of the many histories of this dynamically changing area. www.commonsarchive.net
