Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution

Join Youth UpRising on Thursday, March 24 from 4:00PM to 6:30PM for a documentary film screening of Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution. What was the Black Panther Party (BPP)? Who were its founding members? What cultural and political impact did the movement have on racial equality, social justice, and civil rights? What lessons can we learn from the BPP's structures and systems? And what relevance does the BPP have in the era of the Black Lives Matter movement of today?

This will be an opportunity for youth as well as community members to learn about
The Black Panther Party and its impact as well as discuss lessons applicable to transforming our own community and the significance the movement continues to have in the age of information technology.
