It was an honor to do a solidarity statement tonight at the PrisonersOf ConscienceCommittee 48th Anniversary of the Black Panther Party. Very powerful learning from elders such as Melvin Dickson, Marvin X, Bilal Ali and ChairmanFred Hampton Jr. provided an objective analysis as he hosted the event. All Power to the People! Free Leonard Peltier Free Em All!
Editor note: Black Panther Party first female member Tarika Lewis spoke but declined to be photographed. She gave a detailed history of West Oakland leading to the birth of the BPP.
