Project Description

This past October (2016), I had the honor to attend the 50th Anniversary Black Panther Party rally in the very place it all began, Oakland, CA. I had the opportunity to meet a number of interesting people, many of them original members of the movement.

Throughout the afternoon, a number of bands played for the crowd, gave inspiration speeches and simply put, celebrated a monumental achievement. Following the event, I walked up to the African American Museum & Library, for a talk by many of the founders, as well as some great photography by Suzun Lucia Lamaina.
