Lesley University is honored to present the Black Panther Party co-founder Bobby Seale who will speak about the party's pivitol movement during societal transgressions towards African Americans. Mr. Seale is author of "Power to the People: The World of the Black Panthers" (October 2016) which tells the story of the Black Panther Party, founded 50 years ago in 1966 by Seale and Huey Newton. Admired, reviled, emulated and misunderstood, the Black Panther Party was one of the most creative and influential responses to racism and inequality in American history.
Bobby Seale will be speaking to the Lesley community on Monday, February 27th from 5:00p-6:30p in Washburn Auditorium. Immediately following the evening discussion, there will be a reception from 6:30p-7:00p.
This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to attend this event.
