The Black Panthers and the Civil Rights Movement

Utica Public Library - Utica, NY
The Black Panthers and the Civil Rights Movement

The Black Panther Party has been vilified as extreme, violent and racist. This presentation will dispel these myths by showing the community organizing tradition of the Panthers, their coalitions with other groups and COINTELPRO - the government program created to destroy the Panthers and the New Left of the 1960s-70s. Special attention will be given to the community programs of the Panthers such as the free breakfast program and free community clinics. Presented by Brendan Maslauskas Dunn. For more information, please contact maslauskas84@gmail.com or call 732-2382. Free.
