Black Panthers Video

Recommended for ages 12+
Estimated time: 60+ minutes

This video features Black Panther Party members and young activists, artists, poets, and community advocates answering questions and reflecting on the Black Panther Party legacy and how it resonates today. The video was originally created for the OMCA exhibition, All Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50 which was on view in 2017. 

Today we invite you to watch the video and then use the questions in the video worksheet to reflect on the stories shared by Black Panther Party members, parallels to today, and to consider what it takes to create change in your community.
