Truth to Power: Unapologetically Black Voices in Civic Leadership

October 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

My People Are Rising

Witness local and nationwide history being made through the story of one man—Seattle Black Panther captain, Aaron Dixon—and the enduring legacy of Black Power.

Join us for the documentary My People Are Rising and short film Sincerely, The Black Kids. Stay to discuss the impact of Seattle’s Black Panther Party on its 50th anniversary and the institutional challenges that black student leaders face on mostly white college campuses today. Speakers include Aaron Dixon, founder of Seattle’s Black Panther party at age 19; local Black Student Union leaders; and Tony Benton, host of Rainier Valley Radio.
