DescriptionWhat are the freedom blueprints in the largest collections of Black Panther newspapers? How can these important archives help us understand today's social justice issues? Use art and popular education to learn from the Black Panther Newspapers at Life Enrichment Bookstore with a special deep dive from Estelita’s Library. The special selections will focus on Black Liberation, Solidarity, Food Sovereignty, Housing and more. Along the way, you can also make a silk screen inspired by legendary Black Panther designer Emory Douglas and chat with community organizers and activists whose work is inspired by the Black Panthers. Listen to dazzling spoken word/hip hop artists, as they share verses inspired by Black Liberation movements past and present. Come early for refreshments by The Brown Girl Cooks. The project is made possible with support from the Seattle Public Library Foundation.
