    Genre-busting artists Chinaka Hodge and Hank Willis Thomas are among the contemporary contributors to All Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50. Hodge is a poet, playwright, screenwriter, and educator whose work on racial injustice, identity, and gentrification has earned her national acclaim. Thomas’ expansive art pieces address pop culture depictions of African Americans, racial violence, and civil rights. Here, they converse about how the Black Panther movement has influenced them.
