Neighbor Connections: Black Panther Party Films + Skills Workshop

How do we meet our neighbors? 

Join Saturu Ned – Educator, Community Architect, and a former member of the original Black Panther Party for an afternoon of film screenings and discussion. By looking at archival news footage of Black Panther activities, Saturu will share BPP community-building tools to use in your neighborhood today.

This workshop is part of Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration among African Americans across the country commemorating the announcement of the end of slavery in the United States.

Light refreshments provided by North Oakland’s Phat Beets food justice group.

‘Neighbor Connections’ workshops are part of Commons Archive, a neighborhood memory bank at the Golden Gate Branch Library. Commons Archive honors neighbors as participants, narrators, and creators of the many histories of this dynamically changing area. To learn more about the project, please visit www.commonsarchive.net and follow us on Instagram, @commons_archive.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund that also is supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. This program is supported by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, a private family foundation dedicated to enhancing quality of life by championing and sustaining the arts, promoting early childhood literacy and supporting research to cure chronic disease. Collaboration and innovation are at the heart of all its programs. Its vision is guided by the belief that change is possible through inquiry, creativity, and compassion.
