About The Event
This event is free and open to the public at the Osher Theater, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, UC Berkeley. Join us for a look at a recently discovered, never-before-seen archive of 4,000 images documenting the later years of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and focusing on the party’s community programs in Oakland. This event—featuring speakers Angela LeBlanc-Ernest, Thomas Casey, Ericka Huggins, and Erica Watkins of the Oakland Community School and BSC Fellow Lisbet Tellefsen—provides the first public look at this extraordinary photo archive and pulls back the curtain on the BPP’s flagship educational achievement, the Oakland Community School.
