The Intersectional Black Panther History Project is changing the leading man narrative and highlighting the stories of women’s struggles inside the revolution. This conversation about the Black Panthers will be led by Angela LeBlanc Ernest (The Most Qualified Person to Handle the Job: Black Panther Party Women, 1966-1982), Robyn Spencer (Associate Professor of History at Lehman College, City University of New York), Mary Phillips (The City University of New York (CUNY)-Lehman College, African and African American Studies, Assistant Professor), and Tracye Matthews (Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture at the University of Chicago).
The Conversations in Black Freedom Studies series is curated by professors Jeanne Theoharis (Brooklyn College/CUNY) and Komozi Woodard (Sarah Lawrence College).
Books for the Conversations in Black Freedom Studies Series are available for purchase in the Schomburg Shop! Visit us and read up in advance!
