Black Panther Party 50th Anniversary Commemoration & Conference

October 20–23, 2016
Thursday, October 20, 2016 - 12:00am

The Black Panther Party 50th Committee has chosen OMCA as one of the sites for its conference and celebration marking the 50th anniversary of the Party’s founding. Join former members of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, a historically significant organization that has had profound national and local impacts, at OMCA, Laney College, and other locations in Oakland, California, home base of the Party. Review the Black Panther Party legacy and its historical significance in the black community, and consider the question Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. raised so long ago: "Where do we go from here?"
