Black Panther Party History Workshop
October 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
October is Black Panther Party History Month! We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Free Breakfast survival program. Join Saturu Ned – Educator, Community Architect, and a former member of the original Black Panther Party for an afternoon of North Oakland history. How did the Panthers’ Free Breakfast Program come about? Can it be replicated? What are its legacies today? Saturu will share BPP community building tools to use in your neighborhood today.
Phat Beets, North Oakland’s food justice non-profit, will talk about the many ways they carry forward the Black Panther Party legacy. Their programs include weekly farmers markets (sourcing from local farmers of color), free produce stands, youth gardens, community supported agriculture programs, as well as food and social justice workshops.
Breakfast-inspired refreshments provided by Phat Beets
