Leader of the Black Power movement….
Bobby Seale is the founding chairman and national organizer for the Black Panther Party in the 1960s and ’70s, which he and Huey P. Newton formed as a response to the police brutality in Oakland’s poor Black communities. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, he will share his insights on his experience with social movements then and his thoughts on social movements now, especially in light of the recent verdict of the Trayvon Martin case, attacks on ethnic studies programs and the minimum wage victory led by students and workers in San José.
