Join S.O.A.D (Students of the African Diaspora) for an evening with Aaron Dixon.
In an era of stark racial injustice and decisive action, Aaron Dixon dedicated his life to the struggle for change, founding the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1968 at age nineteen. Through his eyes – in a memoir that begins with the story of his enslaved ancestors and takes us on a journey throughout America – we see the courage of a generation, and the unforgettable legacy of Black Power.
Tuesday March 25th, 7pm
55 West 13th Street, Theresa Lang Center
“Aaron Dixon is a courageous, compassionate, and wise freedom fighter whose story of his pioneering work in the Black Panther Party is powerful and poignant. Don’t miss it!”
“This book is a moving memoir experience: a must-read. The dramatic life cycle rise of a youthful sixties political revolutionary.”
—Bobby Seale, founding chairman and national organizer of the Black Panther Party, 1966 to 1974
There will be a Q&A period during the event! Refreshments will be served.
