October is Black Panther History Month! Join Saturu Ned - Educator, Community Architect, and a former member of the original Black Panther Party for an afternoon of Oakland history. How did the Panthers' Free Breakfast Program come about? Can it be replicated? Saturu will share BPP community building tools to use in your neighborhood today.
