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.

Speakers include Aaron Dixon, founder of Seattle’s Black Panther party at age 19; community leader and educator Omari Amili; and Tony Benton, Station Manager for RainierAvenueRadio.World.
Ticket includes entry to NAAM’s exhibit “Power to the People: Seattle Black Panther Party at 50.” Sponsored by the Northwest African American Museum.
Sincerely, the Black Kids
Follow the stories of black student leaders from colleges around the country that are becoming battlegrounds for racial politics and agendas. Sometimes, they say, it IS because you're black.
